Workshop 1 (Sponsored by Unicharm Corporation)
New Excretion Care for Infection Prevention: To Protect the Health and Safety of Care Receivers and Care Professionals

Chair: Yuko Mizokami (Department Courses for Certified Nurses, Institute for Graduate Nurses, Japanese Nursing Association)
Speakers: Chie Shibuya (Department Courses for Certified Nurses, Institute for Graduate Nurses, Japanese Nursing Association)
Junichiro Tanaka (Excretion-care Research Institute, Unicharm Corporation)
Excretion care is an integral part of the lives of elderly people who require nursing care. Since excrement may contain pathogenic microorganisms that can be a source of infection, infection control cannot be neglected. In order to protect the health and safety of users, patients and staff, it is important to implement infection control measures based on standard precautions.
In this seminar, Lecturer Shibuya, an infection control nurse, will give a lecture on the basic principles of infection control and the key points in excretion care. She will also discuss the rationale behind different techniques while going over a series of steps for changing diapers. Additionally, Unicharm will provide information on the latest care methods and high-performance diapers. We hope you will find this information useful in improving your regular infection control measures.

Workshop 2 (Sponsored by Coloplast K.K.)
Close to the truth of Mio Concave: The right fit for outward bodyprofile

Speakers: Marianne Krogsgaard (Abdominal Centre, Rigshospitalet, Denmark)
Terri Porrett (Education Ostomy Division, Coloplast Limited – UK)
Videos provided by: Health Care Professional Engagement, Innovation, Coloplast A/S
This workshop aims to introduce a common language “Body Profile Terminology” to clearly define the issues of peristomal body profiles, to makes it easier for HCPs and people with a stoma to describe the peristomal area, improves communication, systemizes and standardizes care, treatment and training. We will show the challenges of outward body profile and how Sensura Mio Concave provide the right fit to bring benefits to ostomates with outward body profile.

Workshop 3 (Sponsored by FUJIFILM Medical Co., Ltd.)
Excretion and Pressure Injury Assessment by Advanced Wireless Ultrasonography

Speaker: Masaru Matsumoto (Graduate School of Medicine, The University of Tokyo)
Ultrasonography is attracting the most attention as a novel physical assessment method that allows nurses to visualize the inside of the body. In the field of WOC, ultrasonography has been mainly used to measure bladder urine volume as an evaluation of lower urinary tract function to support urinary independence. Recently, however, there has been a growing need to use this technique for bedside assessments of both constipation and suspected deep tissue injuries (DTI). The performance and usability of ultrasound devices make them suitable candidates for use as bedside observation tools. In this workshop, under the theme of "assessment of excretion and pressure injury by ultrasonography," the capabilities of ultrasonography in a clinical nursing context and current research into ultrasonography, as well as examples of its use in clinical practice, specific observation methods, and the education program will be introduced.

Workshop 4 (Sponsored by Molten Corporation)
Noble pressure distribution care using robotics technology

Speakers: Chieko Hayashi (The University of Tokyo Hospital)
Aya Kitamura (Graduate School of Medicine, The University of Tokyo)
Japan’s aging society and declining birthrate is, on a global scale, entirely unprecedented. In hospitals, the proportion of emergency patients and severe acute patients is increasing. Additionally, as the working-age population declines, the number of nurses and care workers is also declining. As a result, conventional pressure injury preventive care is no longer sufficient.
In recent years, technological innovation in information science has made great progress. By utilizing this progress and fusing both nursing and information technology, we can help to address our current difficulties.
The purpose of this workshop is to share the ideal way to integrate robotics technology and nursing knowledge and care in the near future. In the workshop, we will introduce the robotic mattress “LEIOS” developed in Japan through industry-academia collaboration as an example.
In the lecture part of this workshop (English / Japanese), the development process of the mattress and its implementation in the hospital setting will be outlined.

Workshop 5 (Sponsored by Daio Paper Corporation)
Preventive skin care for diaper users: "Prevention and management of IAD" based on IAD Best Practices

Speaker: Yoshie Ichikawa (Graduate school of medicine, the University of Tokyo)
IAD (Incontinence-Associated Dermatitis) is a dermatitis caused by contact of urine or stool (or both) with the skin, and is a skin disorder that often needs to be prevented and managed in elderly people with incontinence.
The Japanese Society of Wound, Ostomy, and Continence Management published IAD Best Practice in 2019 after a consensus symposium. In this book, the basic principle of care includes "Cleansing", "Moisturizing", "Protection", and "Collection." Among these, we are going to focus on "collection," in particular on "diapers and absorbent pads," which are indispensable for incontinence management. In this workshop participants will learn appropriate "collection" methods according to the characteristics of excrement.

Workshop 6 (Sponsored by Saraya Co., Ltd.)
Pathogenesis and diagnosis of biofilms in chronic wounds: The emerging role of blotting technology

Speaker: Nai-Chen Cheng (Department of Surgery, National Taiwan University Hospital and College of Medicine)
In the recent years, due to reports about biofilms on chronic wounds, emphasis is given to biofilm-based wound care management in which wounds are managed depending on the presence or absence of biofilms. This workshop will introduce the pathophysiology of wound biofilms and clinically relevant biofilm detection techniques.
Prof. Nai-Chen Cheng will provide us a lecture on the pathophysiology of biofilms in chronic wounds, as well as wound blotting technology (a new inspection method for wound biofilms) and how to use it.

Workshop 7 (Sponsored by CAPE Co., Ltd.)
New pressure redistribution; A small shift system in the support surface

Chair: Mayumi Okuwa (Kanazawa University)
Speaker: Junko Sugama (Fujita Health University)
This workshop will be an opportunity for the participants to share what they are troubled with in their daily care, as well as the use of small changes and innovations in pressure injury prevention, posture management, and repositioning to maximize patients’ comfort. We will show specific examples of using the air mattress with the small change function (LAGUNA) in the home care setting.

Workshop 8
ICT is changing wound care

Speaker: Shinsuke Muto (Tetsuyu Institute Medical Corporation)
In order for home care patients with pressure injuries to be able to receive expert wound care without the limitations of location, it is expected that teleconsultations with Wound, Ostomy, and Continence Nurses will be possible. In this presentation, Dr. Muto will introduce the situation in Singapore, where home care and telemedicine are being promoted, as well as the CARES4WOUNDS application for wound management.

Workshop 9
AI-Based Classification of DESIGN-R and Skin Tear

Speakers: Hiroshi Noguchi (Graduate School of Engineering, Osaka City University)
Taketoshi Mori (Next Generation Artificial Intelligence Research Center, The University of Tokyo)
The development of ICT technology for collecting and storing big data including images and sensor information, and the advancement of AI technology based on deep learning which uses multi-layered network learning, are being applied to the medical field. In the field of wound care, digital cameras, ultrasound, and other images and videos are being captured in clinical settings and processed, sometimes in real time, to reflect the results in care. In this workshop, we introduce a method to identify images for STAR classification and DESIGN-R categorization using the latest AI technology. The technique, which has been developed since around 2016, is based on U-net, and has achieved a correct answer rate of over 90% for wound area estimation and 80% for severity estimation. The method is expected to be implemented in smartphones or tablet-type devices to support handy decision making and cloud collection.
