The freedom to show off a stoma or keep it discreet

About This Webinar

Stoma formation can have a profound impact on an individual’s body image and sense of self-worth. This webinar will explore how stoma care nurses can support their patients by helping them to develop resilience, confidence and bravery. This support can help ostomates resume their lives and live them to the full. Throughout the webinar, the presenter will share a selection of relevant research and consider ways in which stoma care nurses can make use of this research in their practice. The session will include a discussion with Annie, an ostomate who has been celebrated as one of Cornwall most inspirational women. This recognition followed Annie’s viral contribution to the ‘Get your belly out’ social media campaign, which she made after hearing about a 10-year-old boy who took his own life following bullying due to his ostomy. This made her determined to raise awareness and normalise having a stoma. Annie’s experience illustrates how stoma care nurses can work with ostomates to challenge public perceptions of having an stoma.
