Participants will receive 1.00 CE contact hour upon successful completion of each session. The sessions are FREE to members and non-members, but registration is required.

Time: 1:00 pm ET
Credits: 1.00 Contact Hour

Session Description:

There is a shortage of nurse practitioner-staffed ostomy clinics that serve patients who had their surgery at another facility or years previously. This lecture will describe an inclusive model for outpatient ostomy care to serve this population. As length of stay decreases, ostomy patients are being discharged home with complex ostomy needs. Most are cancer survivors. This forgotten and underserved community is entitled to care and counseling from a certified ostomy practitioner. Nurse practitioners are uniquely positioned to evaluate ostomy-related medical conditions, educate patients and their caregivers, and prescribe appropriate products and treatments in the outpatient setting.

Session Description:

Parastomal hernias can be a perplexing and frustrating problem for those with an ostomy. This session will describe the etiology of parastomal hernias and their impact on patient quality of life. Both the surgical and the WOC nurse perspectives will be presented, including indications and options for medical or surgical interventions. A surgeon will describe methods for prevention and repair, together with outcomes. The WOC nurse will address challenges to stable, successful pouching, and management techniques that address these challenges.

Session Description:

This session presents a theoretical framework that was developed from a qualitative study with teens (13-18 years of age) examining how teens process the event of having an ostomy. The theory sheds light on how teens process the experience of having an ostomy and how healthcare providers can help the teen move thru the process to get back to their desired “normal” state.
