Progress and Challenges in Perioperative Pressure Ulcer (Injury) Prevention

Jul 20, 2016 1:00pm ‐ Jul 20, 2016 2:00pm

Session Description:
The incidence of perioperative pressure injuries (PPI) over the past 5 years has NOT decreased but increased (Chen, 2012). According to a 2014 publication from the National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel the incident rate for pressure injuries attributed to the operating room ranges from 5% to 53.4% (National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel, 2014). As a result, substantial patient harm has been reported leading to complications, disfigurement, disability, and death. Despite published guidelines specific to the operating room (OR) significant gaps in knowledge, practice, and research exist.

Keys to PPI prevention include developing a strategic plan to address factors in all phases of perioperative care. This program will describe how to develop a clinical improvement strategy for reducing PI in surgical patients by implementing a comprehensive Perioperative Pressure Injury Prevention Program (PPPIP). Learn how to use tools such as the Scott Trigger Gap Analysis template, SWOT analysis, the Scott Triggers®, and an OR Skin Bundle to improve patient safety and strive toward the ultimate goal of zero patient harm.

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

  1. Identify the factors that increase the risk of pressure injuries in the surgical patient.
  2. Describe the role of the WOC nurse in creating strategies to reduce the incidence of hospital-acquired pressure injuries in the surgical population.

From Hygienic Task to Preventive Intervention: Preventing and Managing Incontinence Associated Dermatitis

Oct 21, 2015 1:00pm ‐ Oct 21, 2015 2:00pm

Session Description:
It has been 10 years since a meeting in Chicago resulted in the term Incontinence Associated Dermatitis (IAD) and its first related consensus document. The WOCN Society and Sage Products invite you to join Mikel Gray and Denise Nix for a webinar as they explore the evolution of IAD prevention and management from hygienic task to critical intervention bundles for patient safety. This webinar will present current best evidence and best practices for assessment, prevention and management of IAD in the critical care setting.  Whether you are a critical care nurse or WOC nurse who consults in the ICU, the information in this webinar will inform your efforts at both IAD and pressure ulcer prevention in the context of moisture management.

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

  1. Review the etiology, causes and epidemiology of IAD in the critical care unit.
  2. Discuss the natural history of IAD in the acute and critical care settings and its relationship to pressure ulcer risk.
  3. Identify strategies to prevent IAD in the critical care unit, and its incorporation into preventive care bundles for hospital acquired pressure ulcers and catheter associated urinary tract infection.
  4. Outline strategies for managing IAD in the critical are unit, including strategies for containing urinary and fecal incontinence.

Reporting and Refining Best Practice: Medical Adhesive Related Skin Injury (MARSI)

Aug 12, 2015 1:00pm ‐ Aug 12, 2015 2:00pm

Session Description:
This webinar will summarize results obtained from the live and remote participants of the consensus symposia. Attendees will continue the work of the consensus conference and develop additional statements. Attend this webinar to contribute to the evidence base for our specialty.

Objectives:

  • Describe 3 key WOC specific best practices related to medical adhesive related skin injury (MARSI)
  • Describe strategies to prevent medical adhesive related skin injury (MARSI)

Pressure Ulcer Prevention and Safe Patient Handling: Can they be Combined?

Jul 15, 2015 1:00pm ‐ Jul 15, 2015 2:00pm

Session Description:
Patients at risk for pressure ulcers are often the same patients for whom safe patient handling is needed. A momentary choice of whether to move a patient alone or wait for help can lead to serious injury. However, the majority of injuries are repeated microtears of the soft tissue leading to long term pain and even disability. This session will discuss how wise choices in equipment can permit the patient to be moved and reduce harm to you and your staff.

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

  1. Discuss how pressure ulcer prevention can be accomplished without leading repeated microtrauma to the care givers

Building Consensus: Identification, Assessment and Prevention of Medical Adhesive Related Skin Injury (MARSI)

Jun 8, 2015 8:00am ‐ Jun 8, 2015 9:30am

Session Description:
This session will further define the problem of medical adhesive related skin injury and seek to establish consensus on key areas of assessment needed to identify the phenomena accurately. Audience participation will allow you to help with this process.
