The WOCN Society is pleased to announce our latest document Teen Chat: You and Your Ostomy.

This document was specifically written for teenagers.

 Included in this teen friendly resource you will find information on the digestive and urinary systems, types of ostomies, ostomy products and usage, what to expect after surgery, diet and nutrition and information on transitioning back from surgery. Also discussed are quality of life issues specific to teens such as sports and exercise, travel, returning to school, and social/family relationships. A detailed list of resources for teens is also provided.
You can find this pdf document in the WOCN Document Library. We encourage you to use this information as a helpful guide and communication tool for your teen ostomy patients.
This document originated from the Pediatric Subcommittee (no longer an active WOCN committee). Special thanks to the Ostomy Committee for their support in completing this document.
