Abstract

Several diseases and operations may necessitate the need for the formation of a stoma. Patients who are affected may be concerned about the effect of the stoma on their ability to carry out activities of daily living, as well as how it will affect their quality of life. Nurses who may be involved in the care of patients with a stoma should have an understanding of the reasons for stoma formation, and the types of stoma and appliances available, to enable them educate and support patients, and to allay any concerns.
