Pediatric ostomy care poses many unique challenges to parents, caregivers and WOC nurses who do not have regular contact with the pediatric ostomy population. This session will discuss the common clinical issues encountered when caring for an infant or child with an ostomy. The session will also discuss the social and emotional challenges that face this population. Throughout the session, unique stories from nurses, children and their families will be told through Joanna Burgess, who has been a long term ostomate since the age of three.
