Step to the Beat: Clinical Implications For a New Evidenced Based Ostomy Algorithm


Jun 23, 2014 7:00am ‐ Jun 23, 2014 8:30am


Credits: None available.

Standard: $20.00

Description

The ability of specialist clinicians to provide optimal care and enhance safety for stoma patients has many challenges, including reduced average lengths of stay in hospital post-surgery and the limited number of clinical experts available across healthcare settings. To assist non-expert clinicians involved in the care of ostomy patients, an expert group developed an evidence-based, standardized algorithm, consisting of six steps to properly assess patients and their needs. In 2013, the algorithm completed its final level of validation. This entailed using real-life clinical scenarios with a panel of 297 registered nurses from both acute and post-acute settings. This session will present the findings of the validation study, initial bedside application, and the potential implications for clinical practice.

Objectives: 

  1. Describe development, face, content, and construct validation of ostomy algorithm
  2. Explain potential uses in clinical practice
