Topic Overviews:

Session 1: Neurogenic Related Incontinence (Urinary and Faecal) and Product Prescription presented by Kylie Wicks

Incontinence may occur for a number of reasons. This presentation will focus on neurogenic related incontinence both urinary and faecal. A good continence management program is key to better living and should be designed to work at home and when out. Complications such urinary tract infection and constipation should be minimalised.

This presentation will explore:

  • Assessment criteria
  • Common complications
  • Continence product prescription

Session 2: Incontinence Associated Dermatitis presented by Donna Heggie

Is it IAD?

Incontinence Associated Dermatitis

IAD is an all too common condition not easily diagnosed and often confused and misdiagnosed as a pressure injury.

This presentation will look and the differences in diagnosis, treatment and management of IAD and the difference it can make to quality of life in your clients.

This interactive session will test your continence and wound care knowledge.

Session 3: Local wound infection: Current strategies to minimise risk & manage the problem in everyday practice presented by Wendy White

Despite clinicians having managed ‘infected’ wounds over the centuries, the topic of local wound infection and biofilm phenotype remains an ‘emerging science’. Over the last decade the link between local infection and chronic delayed healing was proposed and confirmed, identifying wound infection as the major barrier to acute & chronic wound healing today. Strategies to address & ‘prepare’ the local wound bed are more important than ever when delivering individualised care to identify and address the unique contributing factors and wound diagnosis for each patient, resident or client. Recent international focus on this topic has led to the development of a new language / approach to wound infection and an invaluable resource to support clinicians in their everyday practice.

This presentation will explore:

  • Acute wounding & transition to delayed healing as it relates to wound infection & a compromised immune response
  • ‘At risk’ populations & the role of all clinicians to minimise risk
  • Classification (local assessment) criteria relating to local, spreading & systemic wound infection
  • Product selection to reduce risk & meet the needs of each unique person, region, wound and skin
