This webinar covers why stoma care nurses should expect peristomal skin to remain intact and look like the skin on the rest of the ostomate’s abdomen. This leads into the importance of educating ostomates from the earliest opportunity about preventing peristomal skin complications, as well as intervening as soon as a complication occurs. This is supported by documentation of peristomal skin using clear, consistent and specific terminology, aided by photography where appropriate.
