Stoma care training for healthcare professionals

For healthcare workers and nurses dealing with patients and service-users post stoma surgery, our stoma care training course offers the knowledge and skills required to ensure the site is kept clean and hygienic.

Our stoma training gives an in-depth insight into the use and types of stomas, potential risks, management of diet and how to effectively care for patients.

We look at each type of stoma:

  • Colostomy – colonic stomas
  • Ileostomy – bowel stomas
  • Urostomy – kidney/urine stomas

Patients and service-users may have had stoma surgery for a number of different reasons, such as:

  • Cancer of the colon and bladder
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Crohn’s disease

As the waste is passed from the body via the stoma, it’s collected in a bag that will need changing/draining periodically. They can be permanent, or temporary, and even if the patient is not resident, they may need assistance with its care.

What does our stoma training course cover?

The stoma care training course syllabus includes everything you need to start practicing in the workplace in order to meet competency assessment requirements:

  • What is a stoma?
  • Indications for use
  • Complications
