What's Hot in San Antonio?


Every year the Society covers the latest trends and topics in wound, ostomy, continence and professional practice during the annual conference. This year, the Society's National Conference Planning Committee has selected hot sessions for you to attend in San Antonio. See below for explanations as to why you won't want to miss these sessions. Click on each title for a session description.

(W504) Should You Bring Your Bowie Knife to a Biofilm Fight? A Debridement Debate

Wednesday, June 10, 9:10 am - 10:10 am

Going off of the major debates of biofilm therapy and abuse of the debridement code by many, this session will be a great point/counterpoint between two clinicians and may raise some interesting scope of practice discussions. What does YOUR scope of practice allow you to do in regards to maintenance debridement - or does is allow you to do anything?

Tuesday, June 9, 2:40 pm - 3:40 pm

Mother and adult-child team Patricia (RN) and Kimberly (former colitis/ostomy patient) Beach share their insights and provide strategies for ostomy nurses who are caring for ill adult children and their parents.

(C310) Everything is Big in Texas Part 1:
Skin Care - State of the Science in Cleaners and Moisturizers

Monday, June 8, 2:40 pm - 3:40 pm

Monday, June 8, 3:50 pm - 4:50 pm

WOC nurses lack the understanding regarding the key ingredients in incontinence skin care products: cleansers, moisturizers and barrier products! These back-to-back evidence-based presentations will increase the WOC nurse's knowledge regarding key ingredients of incontinence skin care products, thereby enhancing product selection for their patients with greater efficacy and safety.

(PP207) Navigating the HCAHPS Across the Continuum

Sunday, June 7, 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

 

WOC nurses may not realize how they can help increase their institution's HCAHPS scores. This session will provide information about how WOC nurses' expertise and behavior will help increase the scores and help them set an example as leaders. This session will also demonstrate how their expertise and leadership will aid in all outcomes and how they will be noticed by the C-suite.
