Description

Chronic wounds, inflammatory bowel diseases, and pelvic floor disorders are affected by many factors, but have you considered exposure to childhood adversity as a risk for these conditions? Science emerging from the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) Study demonstrates a dose- response relationship with chronic illness and health risk behaviors in adulthood that overlap significantly with risk factors for wound, ostomy, continence care issues. This session will review the science of ACEs, specifically scrutinizing neuroscience, epigenetics, and resilience factors from the perspective of the WOC nurse. This session will identify the significant gap in scientific literature in this milieu and calls for research to better understand critical connections among ACEs, adult chronic illness, and skin, gastrointestinal, and genitourinary manifestations.
