Optimizing Care When Wounds Won’t Heal

Jun 24, 2021 10:45am ‐ Jun 24, 2021 11:45am

Identification: 201

Credits: None available.

Within the Wound Bed Preparation model, not all wounds will heal. The goal may prevent infection and wound deterioration. To optimize care for wounds that will not heal requires a partnership between the patient and the health care team. In this session, a nurse physician team will review the updated evidence of the 2021 Wound Bed Preparation model and using a case base approach, highlight patient centered concerns and care strategy options for non-healable and maintenance wounds that should concentrate on control of pain, odor, exudate and optimizing activities of everyday living.

Learning Objective:
  • Apply the updated 2021 wound bed preparation model to optimize care planning for persons with maintenance or non-healable wounds.

Body Wisdom: How Biologic Embedding of Childhood Adversity Impacts Adult GI and GU Health

Jun 24, 2021 10:45am ‐ Jun 24, 2021 11:45am

Identification: 203

Credits: None available.

Biologic patho-mechanisms related to adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and their impact on GI and GU systems’ health are emerging from population level studies. Research increasingly demonstrates that a chronically activated stress response, particularly in childhood, shifts allostasis from healthy to maladaptive processes, impacting brain development and immune and endocrine systems’ functionality via epigenetic influences. This session will review the critical connections between childhood adversity, chronic inflammation, and GI/GU chronic disease in adulthood

Learning Objective:
  • Learners will be able to describe the biological influence of childhood adversity on adult chronic disease occurrence in the GI and GU systems.
Speaker(s):
  • Dr. Janice M. Beitz, PhD, RN, CS, CNOR, CWOCN-AP, CRNP, ANEF, FNAP, FAAN, Professor of Nursing and WOCNEP Director, Rutgers University Camden

Know about the Flow: Pathophysiology, Monitoring and Management of Patients with High-Output Ileostomies

Jun 24, 2021 12:00pm ‐ Jun 24, 2021 1:15pm

Identification: S01

Credits: None available.

Supported by Hollister Incorporated

The post op phenomena of a high-output ileostomy is challenging for both patient and staff and requires the involvement and expertise of the WOC Nurse. In the post-acute setting it takes vigilance and skill to avoid patient dehydration and readmission. In this session, hear from a renown colorectal surgeon who will explain the pathophysiology related to the phenomenon and the step-wise pharmacological interventions from her practice along with rationale. An acute care WOC nurse will outline the care priorities and education strategies employed prior to discharge and an advanced practice WOC Nurse provider will share an outpatient regimen for follow-up, monitoring of laboratory values and rehydration to avoid readmission. Join this session to ensure your practice is up-to-date regarding this post-operative conundrum.

Learning Objective:
  • The learner will apply care concepts to individualize the management and treatment of patients with high output ileostomies across the continuum, focusing on prevention of dehydration and hospital readmission.
