The Stoma Care Self Help Guide
4th Dec 2020
The Association of Stoma Care Nurses have supported IA to share an excellent resource to help you assess your stoma during lockdown, when you may not have access to a stoma care nurse.
The guide includes everything you need to identify issues with your stoma, such as bloating, bleeding, skin conditions or high output, with advice to remedy it yourself or to know when to seek further medical support.
This document can be used by both professionals and patients and is available for you to download here.
The Stoma Care Self Help Guide is endorsed by ASCN and created by Jenny Williams of Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust.
