On December 4th, 2019, we had the privilege to partner with Nurses Specialized in Wound, Ostomy and Continence Canada (NSWOCC) for an important Webinar:
Hosted by Dr. Karen Campbell, PhD, MScN, RN, NSWOC and Laura Robbs, RN, MN, NSWOC, WOCC(C), NCA, 
The Webinar had the following objectives:
  • To review the evidence regarding the risk that inappropriate use of incontinence products and linen pose to patients/residents and nurses.

  • Discuss how linen and fabric technology is evolving to support microclimate management and safe patient/resident handling.

  • To review one hospital’s efforts to change practice to ensure appropriate use of incontinence products and linen.

  • To review the cost of patient/resident and staff injury when appropriate patient/resident handling is not done.

  • To learn from other NSWOCs and NSWOC students the issues related to appropriate incontinence product and linen use in their own work setting and the measures used to improve practice.
