Hi Rachelle, No there are no pictures in the guide. I will send that suggestion on to the Ostomy Committee chair as a suggestion for a possible guide for the future. Thanks, Becky Dryden, WOCN Publications & Website Manager

Are there lots of pictures in the guide? I have many patients that english is second language and even at that they do much better with pictures for learning.

Would it be posible to tweak this document to meet the needs of our pediatric population?

Hi Oscar, we only offer WOCN documents in English. At this time we do not have any set plans for the translation of our documents into other languages. Thanks, Becky Dryden, WOCN Publications & Website Manager

Is there any way to get this information in Spanish? this would be an assest to our parents and caregivers who take care of children with G-tubes. Please let me know Thanks O. Solis
