In this video Katherine and Lindsay from Children's Hospital present cases for bowel management. Multiple cases for constipation or incontinence are presented with possible solutions. Let's review this important topic together.

Katie’s Bio
Katherine Worst, CPNP-AC
Katherine “Katie” Worst is a Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner with a background in acute care, surgery, intensive care, trauma and burns.  Katie served five years as a staff nurse at Children’s National before obtaining her Masters in Science as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner in 2013.  As a mid-level provider, Katie worked with a team of surgeons caring for pediatric trauma, burn and general surgery patients. 
In 2017, Katie recognized a population of patients in need of long-term support, and she took the initiative to educate herself on this population, the colorectal patient surgical patient,  attending national conferences and spending time at other centers.  As a result, she was identified by the surgical team at Children’s National as an expert in their post-surgical care and ongoing bowel management.  She independently ran a bowel management program for surgical patients who struggle with constipation and incontinence following colorectal repair.
In 2019 Katie brought her experience running a bowel management program to the newly created Division of Colorectal and Pelvic Reconstruction, under the leadership of Dr. Marc Levitt, where Katie now serves as the Clinical Leader.   She has led education sessions both domestically and internationally, speaking on the care of the colorectal patient.
