IH05 - Pivoting Your Ostomy Clinical Practice Due to COVID19

Jun 6, 2020 4:15pm ‐ Jun 6, 2020 4:45pm



Presented by Hollister Incorporated

COVID19 has disrupted the lives of our patients and has required clinicians and health care professionals to adjust their practices accordingly. Many patients are wary of visiting ostomy clinics, doctors’ offices or other medical facilities in fear of exposure to COVID19. The use of telehealth and digital care solutions is critical for managing our ostomy patients during this pandemic. This presentation will look at how you can pivot your ostomy practice to ensure you continue to provide accurate information, calm your patients, provide safe avenues to support patients’ ostomy care and ensure positive outcomes. Jan will share some hints and tips for conducting a virtual ostomy clinic and how she has pivoted her practice at the University of Chicago Medicine.
