The European Council of Enterostomal Therapy (ECET)

Session title: Holistic View of Peristomal Skin Irritations

Peristomal skin irritations are common and have a deep impact on the quality of life for people with an ostomy. Stoma care nurses are often directly in charge of identifying these problems and giving patients qualified support. In this session, three speakers present actual best practise information on how to treat patients with peristomal skin irritations.
