Ostomy Pouching Challenges and Solutions (Parts 1 &2) will be presented by Cathy Modlin RN, BSN, CWOCN, WCC, President-National Alliance of Wound Care at this year’s Wild on Wounds National Conference in Las Vegas September 7-10,2011.
Having difficulty managing challenging stomas? This session will provide the front line caregiver with information that will assist in proper management of these challenging stomas. You’ll learn how to identify the type of ostomy you are dealing with, as well as the type of collection device required. We’ll discuss convex vs. concave and how to know when to use each. Learn the difference between small and large collection devices, single vs. multiple use appliances and the length of time they can be used. You’ll learn what to do when leaking occurs and troubleshooting techniques to secure a seal and identify the source of the odor.
