Become the hub of ostomized patients' health care by offering them the learning they need to take care of their health in all areas"

This course focuses on identifying the role of the nurse in the health care of the ostomized patient, in an important area such as health promotion and health education.

The nurse is responsible for the care within his or her competence, whose functions, as established by the Health Professions Law, are the direction, evaluation and provision of care aimed at the promotion, maintenance and recovery of health, as well as the prevention of diseases and disabilities.

Care requires nursing thinking, which is the way nurses approach care and which clarifies the field of nursing discipline.

For all these reasons, the nurse will play a key role in the health promotion and health education of ostomized patients, helping and training them in this new situation.

Hygiene, self-care, nutrition, medication and skin care are basic areas in the care of the ostomized patient. In addition, we add others such as continuity of care, beyond the hospital area, and recovery, through expert patient support, patient schools or rehabilitation.
