The WOC nurse is critical in the prevention and management of peristomal skin complications (PSC). Peristomal skin complications are common and have an impact on more than just the patient, but also to your practice and the healthcare system. Please join Jan Colwell and Gary Inglese as they reveal the first double-blinded, multi-center, international, randomized, controlled trial (RCT) on ostomy skin barriers.  Understand how you can be proactive in your practice to impact clinical outcomes utilizing a ceramide infused skin barrier now backed by science and clinical evidence. This is more than just symposia- it’s a movement. Get involved!

*This symposia session requires pre-registration to attend. Space is limited.*

Learning Objectives

The participant will be able to:
1. Describe the unseen impact peristomal skin complications have an a person with an ostomy.
2. Articulate the relationship of ceramide and skin health and the evolution of skin barriers.
3. List the evidence behind an infused barrier and explain the impact it has on health economics and clinical outcomes.
4. Describe how you can implement the learnings of the session into your practice for positive outcomes.
