Ostomized persons, holistic management, basic care and complications

For an ostomized person, building a stoma means a process of adaptation that begins with learning how to manage and care for the device.
The ostomized person often presents complications in their stoma that can cause serious upheaval in their day to day, affecting their quality of life.
The adaptation adds to the existing difficulty caused by the pathology that led to the stoma in the first place; oncological process, inflammatory pathology (chronic illness) or other situations that sometimes involve an emergency ostomy. This process can vary in length depending on the support received from healthcare professionals and the resilience of the ostomized patient.
Availing of an educational and support plan by health professionals from the beginning reduces and facilitates this process of adaptation.
Most minor complications can be prevented. You need to know them to apply the appropriate measures and thus prevent their occurrence. For other complications, once identified, measures need to be taken to resolve or minimize them; and, most importantly, to detect those that need to be referred to other professionals due to their urgency or treatment requirements.

This course is aimed at graduates in Nursing and 4th year students.
