When you do not have a real live ostomy or wound to demonstrate pouching or dressing application, what do you do? Creating ways to mimic real scenarios can be a challenge. We are creative as WOC nurses and with an imaginative and artistic eye will cruise the isles of craft and hardware stores looking for anything to use to create innovative realistic models for nurses to practice on. Nothing is off limits! In this session, learn how we created wound and ostomy models for education of nursing staff. Learner Outcome:
Learner will be able to develop affordable hands on teaching tools for quality staff development to improve outcomes of patients with wounds and ostomies.
