Pediatric Ostomy Care: Best Practice for Clinicians

The latest Best Practice from the WOCN Society is now available for FREE to WOCN members as a member benefit.

You can find the best practice document in the Member Center in the WOCN Members-only Library. Or view here >> 

Introduction and Overview

The Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nurses Society recognizes and supports best practices in ostomy care, involving both fecal and urinary stomas. In pediatric cases, factors such as the growth and development of the child and the need for training and support of parents and caregivers are also involved. This document addresses clinical issues as well as the need for awareness and sensitivity when dealing with an infant or child as patient, and the understandable concerns of parents and caregivers.
