The transition of ostomy patients from acute care to post-acute or home-based care can be a fragmented experience, leading to the increased risk of peristomal complications and adverse care outcomes for the patient. It's critical that care organizations provide staff and patients with the proper knowledge, resources, and tools to effectively support their wellness journey.   

Join us Wednesday, April 17, at 2 PM ET as Sue Grafton and Wil Walker delve into the unique challenges of newly created ostomies while navigating different ostomy care settings. They will also equip you with the tools and strategies to enhance the care and support provided to your ostomy patients.  

Learning objectives:   

  • Understand the challenges and risks associated with navigating care settings.  
  • Explore the impact of fragmented care on peristomal skin complications.  
  • Discover practical tools and strategies to support ostomy patients in their transition.   

If you cannot attend the live webinar, we still encourage you to register, as all registrants will receive an email with a link to the recording and resources.
