Stoma Care Training (Fundamentals) – Facilitated by registered nurses with first hand clinical experience, this ½ day blended learning course allows learners to gain theoretical and practical stoma care knowledge.
This training course is intended to cover all aspects of safe principles of stoma care including practical application within a classroom environment.
Why Is It Important?
It is estimated that one in 500 people in the UK are currently living with a stoma. Individuals of all ages can have a stoma (Colostomy UK, 2019).
Stoma patients commonly receive specialist care from specialist stoma nurses. However, they may receive care within clinical settings and present health problems related to their stoma. It is vital in these situations and for routine stoma care non–specialist healthcare professionals understand the basics of stoma management. Professionals responsible for routine care must know when to seek help from the stoma care nurse.
