Updated Ostomy Documents
Two updated best practice documents are now available to view in the WOCN Document Library under the ostomy section. Utilize these documents to better care for people living with an ostomy.
The  Basic Ostomy Skin Care: A Guide for Patient and Health Care Providers answers some of the most frequently asked questions regarding the care of a stoma and the skin around the stoma. Although this document was created with the consumer in mind, it may also be helpful for clinicians as a teaching tool. This is an updated version to the 2012 document.
Catheterization of an Ileal or Colon Conduit Stoma: Best Practice for Clinicians provides a quick and easy resource for correct technique with, and without, use of a catheter. Included at the end of this document is the Urostomy Urine Sample Collection Instruction Card, which provides instructions for a patient to provide to the person collecting the urine specimen. This is an updated version to the 2012 document.
