    Best practice in the prescription and use of ostomy products
    Wednesday, April 28, 2021 · 6:00 PM BST
    This webinar discusses how stoma care nurses can teach ostomates the correct way to clean their skin, form a seal and use any prescribed products to avoid or resolve complications.

    Understanding risk factors to optimise stoma care routines
    Wednesday, May 26, 2021 · 6:00 PM BST
    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.
