A complete immersion in the most updated and successful ways of working in the areas of pediatrics and respiratory ostomy"

Nursing research is defined as a scientific process that validates and improves existing knowledge and generates new knowledge that influences nursing practice, directly or indirectly. The professional competencies of nursing have evolved into an autonomous, responsible position with its own field of expertise. The importance of research for the development of the profession and the benefits it brings must be recognized.  

The profile of the healthcare-patient relationship has changed in recent years, moving from a paternalistic model to a model in which patient autonomy has acquired fundamental importance. The patient is becoming an active character, with clear rights, such as the right to be duly informed about his or her disease or to participate in decisions affecting his or her pathology, but also with the duty to be responsible for his or her disease and state of health. Chronic diseases are the main health problem; the patient must be an active collaborating agent in the process.  

The expert patient provides health education, with communication skills and empathy, to chronic patients who are able to understand their disease, take responsibility for their health and correctly manage the therapeutic options set by their health care providers.

In the respiratory area, an exhaustive classification of the types of respiratory ostomies, their functionalities and temporality, as well as the characteristics that identify them, will be carried out.

Nursing care must be planned, so, thanks to this, we will know what care is required by patients with respiratory ostomies at all times since complications can appear, so knowing them, identifying them, preventing them and treating them

The prevention of respiratory infections is another key point in healthcare, due to the morbimortality that this entails, so taking measures to prevent them and carrying out health education for the patient about them is a basic point in our day-to-day work.

Respiratory physiotherapy and phonetic and swallowing rehabilitation will help tracheostomized patients to adapt to their new life situation, as well as to avoid complications.

As for pediatric ostomy, given its importance and peculiarities, this module has been developed to develop all the knowledge and skills required for the care of these patients.

Although an ostomy, whether in an adult or a child, is still an ostomy, those performed in the pediatric age require more specific knowledge from nurses, without them, their care and treatment will not be performed in an optimal way.

Parents will play a fundamental role in this process, they will be the caregivers and companions of the children in this process, so not only the children are cared for, but also the parents.

The skin of pediatric patients can be greatly affected if the necessary resources are not available, so knowing the characteristics of children and all the devices available will be key to patient care.

For some children their ostomy will be with them for many years or the rest of their lives, so knowing the social impact it can have and addressing the psychosocial aspect is critical with these patients.
