Oral Abstract Presentations
 
This year's top research presentations will focus on carefully selected evidence-based topics that are directly relevant to the WOC nursing specialty.

Attend (GS3) Rooted in Results: Research Abstracts on Saturday, May 20, at 1:35 pm, to hear about the field's latest clinical research, including:
 
Persons with new ostomies are a vulnerable population requiring complex care management. In addition to learning stoma management during their convalescent period, they often experience impairment of their psychosocial well being, which can effect adjustment to the stoma and hamper efforts to learn self-care. Read more.
 
Hospital-acquired pressure injuries (HAPI) are a serious, often preventable problem that increases costs, length of stay and patient suffering. Although well-documented in adults, there is little evidence regarding the pediatric population.
 
 
 
Health care organizations strive to minimize harm and provide a safe environment. Despite technological advancements, hospital acquired pressure injuries (HAPI) continue to occur.




 
Women with symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction (PFD) often consult with many different health care providers, increasing the potential for duplication and treatment delay. Multiple referrals can result in increased cost of care and decreased patient satisfaction.
