Sessions

Skin Care Across the Continuum: Prevention to Intervention, Neonate to Geriatric

Jun 4, 2016 6:30pm ‐ Jun 4, 2016 8:00pm

Identification: S01

Credits: None available.

This session will familiarise the participants to the specific skin challenges neonates are confronted to. Many wounds observed within this population are preventable thanks to a basic knowledge of the neonate's skin characteristics. The Geriatric skin does not have the same defenses as skin of someone much younger. The elderly population, especially in the Long Term Care setting, are dealing with cormobidities that no longer allow them to be independent making their risk increase and their healing capability to be compromised. These issues will be discussed.

Learning Objectives:

  • The participant will be able to: Understand the limitations of the skin of the elderly and the special attention it needs for prevention of pressure ulcers and Moisture Associated Skin Damage

Maintaining Peristomal Skin Health: What We Can Do!

Jun 5, 2016 11:20am ‐ Jun 5, 2016 1:00pm

Identification: S04

Credits: None available.

Supported by: Hollister Incorporated: Despite improvements in surgical techniques and ostomy product availability, the incidence of peristomal skin complications remains remarkably high; reported rates are greater than 75%, are not limited to one group or region, and are associated with significantly lower quality of life. Recent research also suggests that patients frequently fail to recognize and report peristomal skin complications. While we now have a number of studies reporting on the incidence and type of peristomal complications, we lack evidence as to strategies for preventing these complications. This presentation will provide a review of the current literature regarding the incidence and impact of peristomal complications, and will explore both clinical and “systems” issues potentially contributing to the problem as the patient moves through the care continuum. A major focus will be on the WOC/ET nurse role in reducing complications and improving outcomes, and specific strategies will be suggested and explored, including a model for maintaining peristomal skin health.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe current data regarding incidence and impact of peristomal skin complications
  • Discuss clinical and systems factors that contribute to the high incidence of peristomal skin complications
  • Identify potential strategies for reducing the incidence of peristomal skin complications
  • Describe models and tools that may be used to maintain peristomal skin health and to promote prompt identification of any damage

Speaker(s):
  • Dorothy Doughty, MN, RN, CWOCN, CFCN, FAAN, WOC Nurse Clinician; WOC Nurse Instructor Emory, Emory University Hospital; Emory WOC Nursing Education Center
  • Jo Hoeflok, RN, BSN, MA, CETN(C), CGN(C), Consultant in Enterostomal Therapy Nursing, Self-employed

Prevalence and Incidence: Implications for Clinical Practice

Jun 5, 2016 11:20am ‐ Jun 5, 2016 1:00pm

Identification: S06

Credits: None available.

Supported by: Hill-Rom: Inconsistency in measuring prevalence and incidence prevents facilities from benchmarking prevalence within their own facility against facilities of similar size and patient acuity. This session will focus on the importance of benchmarking prevalence and incidence, implementation strategies related to these data in the clinical setting, and how these strategies empower the WOC Nurse.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participate in benchmarking prevalence and monitor and guide PU prevention practices
