Outcomes of the Consensus Panel for Discharge for the Patient in Home Care with a New Ostomy

Dec 13, 2017 1:00pm ‐ Dec 13, 2017 2:00pm

Credits: None available.

Standard: Free


Session Description:
Short hospital stays, higher patient acuity and limited access to ostomy specialist, have challenged the education of patients discharged from the hospital with new ostomies. This places an additional burden on the home health nurse in preparing patients for independence in living with an ostomy. A consensus conference of certified ostomy nurses, hosted by the Wound Ostomy and Continence Nurses Society, developed eighteen statements to guide clinical practice in preparing patients for discharge from home health. This session will present the outcome of the consensus panel, and take a look at the supportive discussions and implementation strategies.

Learning Objectives:

  • The participant will be able to utilize the outcome criteria either directly in the home health arena, or through collaboration, empower home health nurses to embrace the criteria prior to discharging patients from home health.
