E-stoma is an online guide that provides helpful information for people getting a stoma and living with a stoma, their relatives, and friends. The guide covers important issues about stoma care relevant to the period before surgery, during hospitalisation and the recovery period, and getting back to life. The course takes a holistic approach to the person with a stoma, and a broad variety of topics are covered — physiological, psychological, and social — such as how to make the barrier more pliable or going back to work after a period of illness and stoma surgery.
You will find theoretical information linked with real-life experiences of people living with a stoma. E-stoma is easy and intuitive to navigate, and it is possible to go through the sections consecutively or jump to and look for specific information.
