Conference on stoma care held
Srinagar, Sep 29: The department of Nursing administration in collaboration with International Ostomy Association today organized a conference cum workshop on Stoma Care at SKIMS, Soura here.
Director SKIMS, Prof Showkat A Zargar said the serious conditions of the bowel and bladder could affect people of any age. “The surgical treatment of these conditions- which include bowel and bladder cancer, inflammatory bowel disease and diverticulosis, functional problems or trauma often requires the formation of a stoma,” he said.
Zargar said the nurses were important members of the health care team and had a significant role in caring for patients with cancer, in particular and in identifying the needs of patients and their families, limiting complications of the disease, and improving quality of life.
“The stoma nurse specialist/stomal therapist has a key role in offering patients reassurance, support and guidance on how best to manage all these issues and how to manage their stoma around their activities of daily living in order for them to achieve a successful rehabilitation. Assessment and management of stoma complications are often the responsibility of nurses across the continuum of care,” he said.
SKIMS Medical Superintendent, Prof Syed Amin Tabish said Urbanization, Industrialization, changes in lifestyles, population growth and ageing all had contributed for epidemiological transition in the country. He said molecular genetics holds a promise for identifying populations at high risk for cancers, therefore, targeting the screening to makes it more cost-effective. "Extensive persuasive health education is needed to reduce the risk factors."
Joint nursing superintendent, Hassina Wani, said, a large number of patients undergo Ostomy surgery every year.
