Stoma care education | Clinical development via the Coloplast Academy - Coloplast UK

Coloplast Professional

We wish to support nurses in every way we can. Not only by delivering innovative solutions that make treatment easier and more effective. But also by providing them with the tools and training they need to develop their skills.

Coloplast Professional offers a range of training and network opportunities to support nurses in their professional development. Whatever their level of experience or specialisation, the programme has educational activities designed to take their clinical expertise to the next level.

Nurses get the opportunity to broaden their experience and network with peers through our educational courses and events. And they get the chance to participate in projects, to increase the impact of their experience.

We benefit greatly from the experience and insight nurses share with us, particularly through our international advisory boards and panels. More than 850 ostomy and continence care nurses from 20 different countries are involved in these.

Working closely with our scientists, engineers, designers and other experts, they help to co-create the next generation of life-changing products and services.

By working together to share knowledge and develop skills, we have the strength to take care to the next level.

Masterclass course detail

Managing entrocutaneous fistulae

In this Interactive masterclass, you will:

  • Explore evidence and guidance for both the acute and long-term management of enterocutaneous fistula
  • Work in groups to develop nursing care plans to support practice within your clinical area
  • Participate in group discussion on key learning points from the day

A unique learning experience

  • We listen - Developed based on direct feedback from SCNs on the challenge of managing enterocutaneous fistulae
  • We use ‘real-life’ simulations - Special-effects prosthetics and actors to simulate real-life scenarios

 


 

Stoma siting

In this Interactive masterclass, you will:

  • Explore evidence and theory underpinning stoma siting 
  • Work in small groups to site patients, taking into consideration all aspects of their personal history and medical issues
  • Participate in group discussion on challenges and key issues associated with each of the four patients
  • Apply reflective learning to the NMC revalidation criteria and write one reflective piece for your revalidation portfolio

A unique learning experience

  • We listen - Responding to popular demand we are happy to continue to be able to offer this masterclass
  • We use ‘real-life’ simulations - Special-effects prosthetics and actors to simulate real-life scenarios

 


 

New models of care – Future proof your service

In this Interactive masterclass, you will:

  • Explore the historical development and rationale underpinning stoma care service provision
  • Discuss changing culture and public expectations, and consider how we can work differently to deliver long-term stoma care support services

A unique learning experience

  • We listen - This masterclass has been developed as a response to feedback from SCNs on the need for support in an environment with ever growing demands on the healthcare professional
  • We use ‘real-life’ simulations - Get to know an exciting new resource that you can offer your community nursing and social care colleagues

 


 

Managing peristomal skin conditions

In this Interactive masterclass, you will:

  • Explore evidence and guidance surrounding peristomal skin disorders
  • Focus on clinical management of skin conditions and the evaluation of skin improvement to enable you to demonstrate impact and value of your expert intervention
  • Work in groups to develop nursing care plans to support practice within your clinical area
  • Participate in group discussion on key learning points from the day

A unique learning experience

  • We listen - Developed based on direct feedback from SCNs reporting that assessment of skin conditions and measurement and documentation of clinical outcomes is not well supported
  • We use ‘real-life’ simulations - Special-effects prosthetics and actors to simulate real-life scenarios

 


 

Patient Group Directives

In this masterclass, you will:

  • Explore the legal implications for Stoma Care Nurses using products and recommending medications
  • Discuss using treatments ‘off license’ and identify recommendations for practice
  • Learn about methods to ensure your practice is covered by the use of Patient Group Directives (PGD)
  • Work in groups to develop PGD examples for common stoma management issues
  • Leave with templates to modify and adapt within your Trust

A unique learning experience

  • We listen - This Masterclass has been developed as a result of feedback following the Management of Skin Conditions Masterclass on concerns regarding the legal implications for practice

 


 

Obesity and hernia challenges

In this interactive masterclass, you will:

  • Explore the increasing challenges in clinical management of ostomates related to obesity and parastomal hernia
  • Identify strategies to prevent and minimise the QoL impact for ostomates
  • In groups identify effective, practical clinical management strategies in simulated real-life scenarios

A unique learning experience

  • We listen - Developed based on direct feedback from SCNs on the challenges that obesity and parastomal hernia pose
  • We use ‘real-life’ simulations - Special-effects prosthetics and actors to simulate real-life scenarios
