The Gut Microbiota & Health: A Focus on Linking Intestinal Dysbiosis & Human Disease

Nov 20, 2019 1:00pm ‐ Nov 20, 2019 2:00pm

Session Description:

One of the most striking recent advances in science is the discovery that the gut microbiota, the largest microbial community inhabiting our body, fulfills important functions for human health such as protection against infection, nutrition and regulation of our immune system. Therefore, the imbalance in the intestinal microbial community (known as “dysbiosis”) has emerged as a key player in the pathogenesis of a variety of diseases, ranging from cardiovascular disease and cancer to neuropathies and much more. This session will introduce the exciting field of the microbiome and will cover the role of the gut microbiota in promoting human health, how gut dysbiosis occurs, and the clinical implications of gut dysbiosis with focus in hospital acquired infections, inflammatory bowel disease and colon cancer.

Learning Objectives:

Upon successful completion of this educational program, the learner should be able to:

  • The learner will understand the key role of the gut microbiota in health and disease and how interactions between the host and the microbiome can be modified to improve health and prevent illness.

Convexity: Where Did it Come From and Where are We Now?

Sep 26, 2019 1:00pm ‐ Sep 26, 2019 2:00pm

Session Description:

This session will provide the attendee with an historical perspective on the use of convexity in the management of a patient with a stoma. To understand where we are now with product choices, it is important to step back and review the evolution of various shapes of convex pouching systems. We will examine types of convexities including degrees of convex products, location of the convexity and stability (hard soft light rigid) of convexity. Case studies will illustrate the use of convex products in management of the patient with a stoma.

Contact Hours: 0.00

Learning Objectives:
Upon successful completion of this educational program, the learner should be able to:

  • Describe the Inception of Convex Pouching Systems.
  • Discuss the Variety of Convex Management Options.

Pharmacological Management of the Individual with a High Output Stoma

Aug 28, 2019 1:00pm ‐ Aug 28, 2019 2:00pm

Session Description:
Individuals may experience high stomal output for several reasons. This may result in readmission with dehydration and/or kidney injury. Preventing readmission and preserving kidney function in these patients requires accurate I and O recording –of stool and urine. The purpose of this webinar is to provide the clinician with tools to develop plans for pharmacological management to support nutrition and hydration management (discussed in the August 14 Webinar) to aid with output management to prevent dehydration, to prevent kidney injury, and to improve the quality of life for these patients.

Learning Objectives:
Upon successful completion of this educational program, the learner should be able to:

  • Apply step-by-step Pharmacological Interventions to decrease the output from a high output stoma
  • Discuss the risk and benefits of select medications used for management of high stoma output

Nutrition and Hydration Management of the Individual with a High Output Stoma

Aug 14, 2019 1:00pm ‐ Aug 14, 2019 2:00pm

Session Description:
Individuals may experience high stomal output for several reasons. This may result in readmission with dehydration and/or kidney injury. Preventing readmission and preserving kidney function in these patients requires accurate recording of daily stool and urine volume. The purpose of this webinar is to provide clinicians with tools to develop individual treatment plans in order to maximize hydration and nutrition absorption, and in so doing, prevent kidney injury and improve quality of life for these patients.
