Abstract

A variety of gastrointestinal/genitourinary etiologies may necessitate the creation of a fecal or urinary diversion. Teaching the patient how to care for a new ostomy can be a challenging experience for the nurse. The patient with an ostomy needs encouragement, support, and counseling to learn how to integrate self-ostomy care into daily activities.
