Deformities & Dysfunction: Establishing Excellence in Peri-operative Nursing Care

(*Separate Registration Required)
T. Nicole Kelley, MS, ACNP, CCRN, CPSN, CANS RNFA; Nicole Sweeney, CRNP

This workshop will provide a foundation for excellence in perioperative care of patients with craniofacial dysfunction. Excellence begins with understanding craniofacial skeletal and soft tissue “harmony” providing the human face unique self-branding, 5 fundamental sensory, and motor function. Debilitating dysfunctions include inabilities to kiss, speak, chew, smile, blink and communicate emotion. Plastic & Reconstructive Nurses are charged with the direct care of patients who undergo surgical intervention for treatment. This workshop will provide comprehensive participant engaged demonstration of physical and cranial nerve exams, CT imaging review, skeletal plating systems and safety features, perioperative care complications and needs, and evidence-based practice.

Objectives:
  • Identify various etiologies of craniofacial abnormalities.
  • Compare to “normal” craniofacial anatomy & physiology, and predict aesthetic and dysfunctional sequelae.
  • Describe key pre-operative assessment findings enabling early recognition of common anticipated intra & post-operative needs including Anesthesia & OR patient safety considerations, complications of bone and soft tissue healing including infection, contraction with scar, and sensory & motor dysfunction.
