She has been proudly employed at the University of Rochester Medical Center for over 30 years and for the past 5 years she has focused on the well being of ostomy patients throughout the continuum of care, with long-term management being her love. Her true specialty is the interdisciplinary co-management of ostomy patients with complex medical and dermatological diseases such as psoriasis, eczema, IBD, cancer and wound management in the parastomal region.

During this episode, Ginny she speaks to us about the content from a recent WOCN Society webinar, Dermostomy: Advanced Dermatological Conditions of the Parastomal Region, which included a review of chronic and complex dermatological and medical disease states.
