New education resource for stoma care launched


A new free stoma care education resource has been launched for acute and community nurses.

The Foundation Course in Stoma Care; a nurses’ guide to bowel stomas was developed by a group of stoma care nurses and is accredited by the RCN.

The course includes an interactive CD Rom divided into four modules. The modules cover anatomy and physiology, colorectal conditions, stoma types, surgery and related nursing care. Psychological, emotional and lifestyle issues are also discussed. Nurses who complete the course are invited to attend a one-day clinical skills workshop.

The course is supported by an education grant from Coloplast. For further information about the course contact Anne-Marie
