Learn how to offer a comprehensive care to your ostomized patients, with a high training course"

The ostomized patient faces a great challenge with this new situation, so we must help them, as health professionals, to face it. The patient will be challenged to acquire skills to coexist with the modification of his body and will experience psychosocial transition. 

The use of the devices on your body can generate negative feelings, such as fear, anguish, sadness and helplessness, linked to feelings of mutilation, loss of health and self-esteem, as well as a sense of worthlessness and chronic disability, among other emotions. 

Ostomized patients experience changes in their lives, mainly related to a social area, such as work, leisure or sexuality, which could result in their feelings of insecurity and fear of rejection being accentuated. It is therefore essential that the patient receives comprehensive care, with a multidisciplinary and specialized approach to the needs of the patient and his or her family, with a view to full physical, emotional and social recovery, leading to recovery. 

It is therefore essential to prepare the patient for this new situation. Preoperative consultations and the role of the nurse will play a key role in this adaptation and rehabilitation process.

Throughout the process, the nurses will provide the patient with all the necessary training in self-care, hygiene, nutrition, etc., knowledge that he/she will acquire from the beginning.
