The quality of care for patients with digestive pathology is conditioned by the updating of the knowledge of the professionals who provide care. Get up to date on nursing procedures for the ostomized patient"

Gastrointestinal bleeding is defined as any blood loss originating in any segment of the gastrointestinal tract, and is considered a frequent cause of hospitalization, morbidity and mortality, particularly in elderly patients in whom this complication is more commonly found.

Bleeding can occur at any location in the gastrointestinal tract. In general, any bleeding originating from a location proximal to the ligament of Treitz is considered upper GI bleeding, and bleeding distal to the ligament is considered lower GI bleeding.

The intensity of the bleeding can range from massive to occult, so the role of the nursing staff in the care of patients with this pathology is very broad and can vary according to the different areas of approach.

The education of nurses on gastrointestinal bleeding is fundamental to achieve a comprehensive approach. However, at present, in the field of digestive nursing, there are no reference educational programs that go beyond small seminars, courses of a few hours or clinical sessions, and of all of them, many focus on the medical part, forgetting the metaparadigm of nursing, care.
