This book provides a comprehensive description of stoma care management and the physical and psychological care of the patient in the immediate and long-term. It will appeal to readers throughout the range of stoma care expertise, from novice to expert: the breadth and depth of the material should meet the needs of specialist and generalist nurses in hospitals and the community. A patient-centred style of nursing is described: how nurses' knowledge and skills can be specifically used to promote patients' long term rehabilitation as well as addressing their immediate needs. It also shows how research findings, models and concepts from nursing and non-nursing disciplines can be used to understand patients' experiences and needs and thus enhance care planning and provision.
How to plan and provide care so that it actively supports patients' early stages of recovery and long-term rehabilitation goals.
How to use communication skills strategically to foster a collaborative relationship with patients and their familites.
Care of patients with 'conventional' and 'internal' bowel and urinary stomas.
Care of patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy, including the effects these may have on stomal output and appliance management.
Management of patient's sexual concerns and problems.
Helping patients manage loss and change, and achieve psychological wellbeing.
Care of patients with fistulae.
