Description

Stoma formation is common and may be necessary in the management of certain diseases and as a result of surgery to the gastrointestinal tract or urinary tract. Because stomas provide an alternative route for the excretion of faeces and urine, they can have a significant effect on the individual's physical, psychological and social functioning. Stomas require careful management and patients need to be taught how to self-care for the stoma and how to recognise common complications. This learning module focuses on the signs, symptoms and management of peristomal skin complications.

Objectives

This module aims to increase the reader’s knowledge of stoma formation and the importance of effective management of patients with peristomal skin complications.

Describe the anatomy and physiology of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract and urinary system.
Provide an overview of the different types of stomas and their indications.
Identify the appropriate stoma appliance for each type of stoma.
Discuss the causes of peristomal skin complications and appropriate management.
Outline when and why stoma accessories can be used.
