This webinar will explore the presenter’s experience of designing a best-practice pathway to provide patients with the power to take control of life after stoma formation. At each stage, this interactive session will involve the audience and draw on conversations with patients who have first-hand experience of being on this pathway – which was co-authored by the presenter as part of a taskforce to raise the profile of stoma care nurses.
The webinar will unpack what goes into developing an evidence-based best-practice pathway, to ensure that it protects patient safety, promotes adherence and provides access to expert support. It will also be a live demonstration of the value that collaborating with patients, by soliciting and responding to their feedback, can have for service improvement.
The session will emphasise the importance of responding with flexibility, both to individual patient needs and to external challenges (such as a pandemic), as well as going above and beyond the minimum standards set by guidelines and pathways. Finally, the presenter will show how all of this can be used to raise the profile of specialist stoma care nursing, in a way that demonstrates value, makes a positive impact for patients and helps break down the sense of stigma around having a stoma.
The webinar is organised by the British Journal of Nursing and Stoma Tips, and is kindly sponsored by Pelican Healthcare and Respond Healthcare.
