Educational booklets and specialist information
We have produced a number of educational booklets for health care professionals and your patients.
Our patient booklets are designed to be as informative as possible and can help to explain what stomas are, how to adjust to life with a stoma, what diet to follow with a stoma and other important information.
For nurses, we have more specialist information such as our concise guide to stoma care for community nurses and fact sheets to help with prescribing.

Downloadable skin health tool
We’ve also created a free Skin Health Tool available for download, to facilitate better conversations with your patients about the condition of their skin and help them more clearly and easily explain to you the issues they are facing, plus monitor any changes in the skin around their stoma. To download this tool, please visit the dedicated Skin Health Tool web page.
If you would like a paper copy of any of the resources featured on this page, please call us on our Careline 0808 256 5400.
Supporting your learning and NMC revalidation
Our free e-learning course, an Introduction to Stoma Care, includes defined learning outcomes, a printable certificate and trackable progress log plus optional case studies with opportunities to reflect. Course content is mapped to the Skills for Health National Competency for Stoma Care. For registered nurses, hours spent on this course can count towards the participatory learning criteria for your NMC revalidation.
