Stoma formation is common and may be necessary in the management of certain diseases and as a result of surgery to the gastrointestinal tract or urinary tract. Because stomas provide an alternative route for the excretion of faeces and urine, they can have a significant effect on the individual’s physical, psychological and social functioning. Stomas require careful management and patients need to be taught how to self-care for the stoma and how to recognise common complications. This learning module focuses on the signs, symptoms and management of peristomal skin complications.
