WOC Nurses are often called upon to make recommendations to individuals or purchasing/procurement representatives regarding body worn absorbent products. While considered a containment strategy for incontinence, these products simultaneously impact skin integrity. The WOCN Society held a consensus conference to identify current clinical practice gaps and define standards of care for individuals using body worn absorbent products for the management of fecal and urinary incontinence. The goal of the consensus conference was to develop evidence and consensus based statements that result in the development of a manuscript and ultimately, an evidence-and-consensus-based decision support tool around this concept. In this episode of WOCTalk, we feature a discussion with four members of the consensus conference regarding their session at the WOCN Society’s 50th Annual Conference, “Setting the Standard for Body Worn Absorbent Products: Results of the WOCN Consensus Conference”.
