ADVANCED SESSION FOR NSWOC ON ACE: Transitioning Paeds to Adult
Friday, May 22, 2020
1540 - 1620
Antegrade continence enemas were first used in the 1990’s for the treatment of pediatric refractory fecal incontinence, resulting in a good quality of life. Although commonly considered a pediatric procedure it is proving to be an acceptable option for adults striving for social continence.
Transitioning of care for this pediatric population to the adult medical system is often difficult and inconsistent, depending on geographical location and underlying diagnosis. As with any transition of care, not only do families need to be empowered, this needs to be done in a timely and effective manner. Follow-up is very important, family physicians, nurse practitioners and NSWOCs need to have information to support patients and families. It is within the scope of practice of the NSWOC to spearhead this care.
This presentation will discuss antegrade colonic enemas, populations that can benefit from them and strategies for transition.
