Abstract

Aim: To identify the knowledge and skills required by the specialist stoma care nurse to facilitate the needs of patients adapting to a newly formed stoma in order to inform specialist nurse education. Background: Advances in surgical techniques, drug therapies, bowel screening and patient recovery programmes have offered those with colorectal disorders, a potential increased life expectancy and improved disease management. For the specialist nurse, there is the constant challenge to keep abreast of these advances and provide more formal, precise and accurate information, facilitating individualised patient need. In response, an education curriculum needs to foster a comprehensive knowledge base in order to equip and support the nurse to become confident and competent in clinical practice. How knowledge is translated from the classroom into clinical practice is a key feature of this study; in particular the role of the specialist stoma care nurse in facilitating the adaptation of patients following stoma surgery.
