Best practice in stoma care for neonates, children and teenagers

The Global Paediatric Stoma Nurses Advisory Board has issued guidelines to help clinicians achieve consistent best practice.

Paediatric stoma care nursing is still a relatively undescribed field, and little literature and research are available. In fact, many stoma care nurses working with adults say they would not be comfortable caring for the paediatric population. To meet the need for clear and effective guidelines in this important area, an international group of paediatric stoma care experts have developed best-practice guidelines on paediatric stoma care to support colleagues working in this field and ultimately improve the quality of life for neonates, children and teenagers with a stoma and their families.
