Organ Failure: Getting Skin in the Game


Jun 24, 2019 8:40am ‐ Jun 24, 2019 9:40am


Credits: None available.

Standard: $5.00

Description

Organ function, dysfunction, and failure are well-defined concepts that include clinical, laboratory, and diagnostic criteria for most organ systems. The significant impact of organ dysfunction has led to the development of tools which measure the severity of illness and assess patient prognosis. Despite the knowledge, the skin remains fairly absent when quantifying and assessing either organ dysfunction or failure. This session will discuss organ failure assessment for major systems, how individual organ failure impacts other systems, and will examine current knowledge about skin failure and future implications.

Learner Outcome:

  • By the end of the session learners will be able to identity clinical characteristics that contribute to the concept of organ failure as it relates to skin failure and potential diagnostic criteria.

Speaker(s):

  • Kevin R. Emmons, DrNP, APN, AGPCNP-BC, CWCN, CFCN, Clinical Associate Professor of Nursing, Rutgers School of Nursing- Camden
  • Karen Lou Kennedy-Evans, RN, APRN-BC, FNP, Family Nurse Practitioner, Foothills Rehabilitation Center
