Disorders or urinary or bowel storage or elimination and prevalent and clinically relevant This presentation will focus on the latest pharmacologic management of lower urinary tract and gastrointestinal storage and elimination disorders. Designed for the advanced practice provider, we will review options for pharmacotherapy, and their integration into a combined management program focusing on combined behavioral and pharmacologic treatment of disorders of the bowel and lower urinary tract including fecal and urinary incontinence, along with urinary retention and constipation.



Objectives:
  • Following this event, learners will increase their use of combined pharmacologic and behavioral interventions for management of fecal and urinary incontinence, urinary retention and constipation.

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.



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

Many cutaneous manifestations of COVID-19 have been described. In some instances, these lesions can mimic pressure injury. In this session, we will discuss the spectrum of cutaneous manifestations of COVID-19 that have been recently identified and furthermore, discuss ways in which they can be differentiated from pressure injury.



Objectives:
  • Differentiate cutaneous manifestations of COVID-19 from pressure injury.
Thursday

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



Objectives:
  • Learners will be able to describe the biological influence of childhood adversity on adult chronic disease occurrence in the GI and GU systems.

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.



Objectives:
  • 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.

As a society, we have embraced technology in our homes and lives. As professionals, we have embraced technology in our work … well, hold on there …sometimes we have. Technology has been developed to help us find early changes in the skin and soft tissue to identify pressure injuries not yet visible. Technology has also been invented to help us track which patients need to be turned, how high the interface pressure is under them and to signal staff to move high risk patients. And there is more…there are devices that wick away urine and signal the nurse that the patient has voided. Apps also exist to bring us closer to guidelines for our work. So why am I comfortable with cruise control on my car, but not with an app to tell me the patient needs to be turned? This session will introduce you to the developed technologies for pressure injury prevention and perhaps change your view of technology for pressure injury prevention!



Objectives:
  • Describe advances in technology that can assist with pressure injury prevention.

Over the last year, skin protection reached new urgency in clinical practice as well as for the general public. The causes of skin injury are diverse, and the etiology of the skin problem must always be correctly identified. This symposia session will highlight the latest evidence on prevention and treatment of IAD, MARSI and MDRPI. At the end of the session, this year’s Safe Skin Award Recipients will be recognized for their award-winning prevention program.



Objectives:
  • Apply the latest evidence in preventing and treating skin injuries from IAD MARSI and MDRPI.

Nutrition plays a huge role in wound healing by providing adequate calories and protein as well as vitamins and minerals. The registered dietitian is a key member of the interdisciplinary health care team involved in the treatment of wounds including burns, pressure injuries, trauma and surgery. Collaborating and communicating with WOC nurses is vital to the dietitian in gaining insight into the details of wound healing and having a more successful outcome for the patient.



Objectives:
  • Learn to know when to consult the dietitian.
