Comment: 'Psychological aspects of illness and aftercare are often ignored'


An excellent article and one that all healthcare professionals should read. However, I wonder if the author would herself have asked a patient how she or he felt about their colostomy/stoma at age 21 or 22, as most nurse graduates are. The wisdom that the author conveys is the result of many years of valuable experience caring for others as well as the personal experience of being a patient with a potentially life threatening condition. That cannot be taught and with the best will in the world, nurse graduates with limited life experience cannot be expected to be wise beyond their years or empathic beyond their life experience.
