Jun 26, 2019 9:50am ‐ Jun 26, 2019 10:50am


Credits: None available.

Standard: $5.00

Description

High output ostomy is cause for much morbidity among patients, in particular the unappreciated effects on both short and long term renal function. In addition to this significant patient burden, health care costs are increased, and from an administrators perspective, these costs can be considerable if patients are readmitted less than 28-days after discharge for their ostomy surgery. The purpose of this session is to bring this important information to light and to provide the clinician with strategic interventions to, most importantly, keep our patients safe, but also keep health care costs down.

Learner Outcome:

  • Participants will be able to strategically select and dose medications to enhance absorption and decrease stool volume, and determine when to enlist diet and fluid recommendations.

Speaker(s):

  • Carol Rees Parrish, MS, RD, Nutrition Support Specialist, University of Virginia Health System
