Nurses must be able to identify and address the many issues faced by stoma patients.

Stoma care patients face a number of issues that can lead to embarrassment and distress. Patients rely on nurses to effectively resolve these issues and suggest stoma care products that will relieve discomfort and embarrassment, and contribute to improved confidence. It is equally important that nurses are equipped with the relevant knowledge, enabling them to identify the cause of problems and deal with them effectively and appropriately.

Nurses involved in the care of patients with stomas should have a basic understanding of the body's nutritional requirements, its normal digestive processes, and the effect that stoma surgery has. This will enable them to provide individualized information and reassurance to ostomists, who may harbour concerns or misconceptions of stoma formation.
