SY01 – Transition of Care: Moving the Wound and Ostomy Patient from Hospital to Home Care
Ticket required for this session. Select when completing registration.
Transitioning patients with wounds and ostomies from the acute care setting to home care can present a number of challenges for case managers. This presentation will give the perspectives of the Wound Ostomy Continence (WOC) nurse from both the acute care and home care settings. The speakers will provide insight and guidance to help facilitate the case managers role in the transition process. Their insight from years of practice in their respective settings will help case managers know better what types of facilities or services may work best for their patients with wounds or ostomies as well as the types of information they will need to collect and share regarding the care of these patient populations.
