Paediatric stoma care nursing is still a relatively undescribed field, and little literature and research are available. Many stoma care nurses working with adults say they would not be comfortable and confident caring for the paediatric population.
In order to provide more information about this area, we have brought together an international group of paediatric stoma care experts – the Global Paediatric Stoma Nurses Advisory Board – to develop global guidelines for healthcare professionals. This expert group is dedicated to share their experience as paediatric stoma nurses, to support healthcare professionals
Coloplast is the proud sponsor of the ‘Global paediatric stoma care best practice guidelines', and has facilitated the process of creating this document. All content has been developed exclusively by the Global Paediatric Stoma Nurses Advisory Board with no involvement from Coloplast.
We also have a range of guidelines and animation videos that might be helpful in teaching the patients how to manage their stoma.
