The Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nurses Society™ has launched its first app, called the Evidence-Based Wound Care Guidelines and Fecal Ostomy Best Practice app. It is designed to provide up-to-date recommendations for patients with pressure ulcers, fecal ostomies, lower extremity arterial disease, lower extremity neuropathic disease, and lower extremity venous disease.
Dr. Stuart Robertshaw, perhaps better known widely as "Dr. Humor," will be the keynote speaker Sunday at the Wound Ostomy Continence Nurses Society 43rd Annual Conference in New Orleans. Robertshaw, a recently retired professor of psychology and education who has researched and presented on the role of humor in patient care for more than 23 years, will speak on "The Healing Power of Humor."
