GS3 - Peristomal Skin Health: A WOCN Society Consensus Conference

Jun 25, 2021 10:30am ‐ Jun 25, 2021 11:30am

Standard: $5.00


A significant volume of research has focused on describing the epidemiology of peristomal skin complications (PSCs) but little research has focused on characteristics and determinants of healthy peristomal skin. This session will identify clinical evidence guiding the concept of peristomal skin health; intrinsic and extrinsic factors affecting peristomal skin health; and gaps in evidence, which required the generation and validation of consensus-based best practice statements to maintain healthy peristomal skin.

Learning Objective:
  • At the end of this session, participants will be able to describe the results of the consensus conference which generated evidence and consensus-based statements to promote peristomal skin health.
