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 Objective:
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

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

  1. Describe the risks for pressure injury that occur with various levels of progressive mobility
  2. Identify preventive measures for pressure injury at all levels of progressive mobility

Ostomates Without Borders: Nurse Practitioner Led Independent Ostomy Clinic

Oct 24, 2018 1:00pm ‐ Oct 24, 2018 2:00pm

Session Description:
There is a shortage of nurse practitioner-staffed ostomy clinics that serve patients who had their surgery at another facility or years previously. This lecture will describe an inclusive model for outpatient ostomy care to serve this population. As length of stay decreases, ostomy patients are being discharged home with complex ostomy needs. Most are cancer survivors. This forgotten and underserved community is entitled to care and counseling from a certified ostomy practitioner. Nurse practitioners are uniquely positioned to evaluate ostomy-related medical conditions, educate patients and their caregivers, and prescribe appropriate products and treatments in the outpatient setting.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will have a better understanding of the challenges ostomates face in the outpatient setting and the obstacles to establishing a nurse practitioner led outpatient ostomy clinic.

Designing Solutions for Creating a Culture of Safety for the Patient and the Nurse

Oct 18, 2017 1:00pm ‐ Oct 18, 2017 2:00pm

Session Description:
This session will address how intense or prolonged pressure seen with immobility can lead to deep tissue pressure injury. Gaining mobility for patients can lead to back and shoulder injury in the caregiver, however. Building a resilient culture for sustainable change will be addressed, along with a focus on skin and safe patient handling to reduce pressure injury.

Learning Objectives:
At the end of this webinar, the participants will be able to:

  1. Identify ergonomic risk factors for work related patient handling injuries, and strategies to develop an interprofessional program that addresses early mobility/safe patient handling/pressure injury prevention and fall prevention.
  2. Describe safe patient handling strategies that reduce the intensity and duration of pressure and shear on the skin and soft tissue for bedridden and early ambulating patients.
