New Resource To Help People With An ostomy

The Peristomal Skin Assessment Guide for Consumers is a free, easy-to-use, mobile tool that provides basic guidance for teens and adults living with an ostomy. This resource is designed to help identify common skin problems, provide next steps for care or management and appropriately prompt individuals to seek care or support from a wound, ostomy and continence (WOC) nurse or a nurse specialized in wound, ostomy and continence (NSWOC). Access it on your smartphone, tablet or computer!

Be sure to share this innovative tool with your ostomy patients as a resource to provide them with additional comfort and support to enhance their quality of life.
