Training & Education
To further our charitable mission we carry out training and educational activities to ensure patients get the best range of reliable support and information, wherever they seek it:
Patient workshops - to allow anyone affected by stoma surgery to be more empowered and better understand their own condition. These workshops can be provided at your events.
"Nuts & Bolts" training course - this is aimed at support group organisers, enabling them to better support people affected by stoma surgery. This course is usually delivered at public venues.
Anatomical Training ApronsThe Anatomical Apron is a unique tool for educating patients about stoma surgery. Many patients find that seeing the digestive systems represented in this way helps them understand their operation more clearly. It is especially useful for teaching patients with additional communication needs (e.g. non-English speakers, those with special educational needs and children)
Why not buy one for your department and discover what a useful addition to your teaching this can be?
Ostomy Lifestyle is now the UK distributor for the Anatomical Apron. Previously it has been difficult to get hold of this fantastic training aid as they have to be shipped from the USA, however they can be ordered from Ostomy Lifestyle for £150 (+p&p).
