Session Description:
Reducing complications and readmissions is a key metric for all surgical care providers. Currently, we have a description of the problem in the literature but few solutions. This session will address the scope of the perioperative problem with complications and specifically look at the challenges in new ostomates. We will also review and explore the work that has been done to reduce readmissions.

Session Description:
Short hospital stays, higher patient acuity and limited access to ostomy specialists have challenged the education of patients discharged from the hospital with new ostomies. This places an additional burden on the home health nurse in preparing patients for independence in living with an ostomy. A consensus conference of certified ostomy nurses, hosted by the WOCN Society, developed 18 statements to guide clinical practice in preparing patients for discharge from home health. This session will present the outcome of the consensus panel and look at the supportive discussions and implementation strategies.

Session Description:
Pediatric ostomy care poses many unique challenges to parents, caregivers and WOC nurses who do not have regular contact with the pediatric ostomy population. This session will discuss the common clinical issues encountered when caring for an infant or child with an ostomy. The session will also discuss the social and emotional challenges that face this population. Throughout the session, unique stories from nurses, children and their families will be told through Joanna Burgess, who has been a long term ostomate since the age of three.
