As an ostomate, your questions may change throughout the various stages of your ostomy. Early on, your questions may be basic: what is an ostomy? As you adjust to life with an ostomy, you will uncover new questions: how do I keep my skin healthy? How do I manage skin irritation? Recent updates to the Ostomy Learning Center at Hollister.com are designed to make it easier to find the information and education you need to live your best life with an ostomy.
"We have updated the Ostomy Learning Center with a new format to make it easier for people to access the specific information they are looking for right away," says Kim Smitka, Manager of Clinical Education at Hollister Incorporated.
For example, many people with ostomies experience peristomal skin irritation and assume this is normal. The new learning center gives them the resources they need to help avoid peristomal skin complications. In addition to routine ostomy skin care, other topics from tips to avoiding leakage to why ceramide is vital to healthy skin are also addressed.
Descriptive color photography, simplified charts and step-by-step instructions make the Ostomy Learning Center a page worth bookmarking for anyone living with an ostomy.
Whether you are about to have surgery, have had your stoma for years, or want to learn how to keep your skin healthy, we are here to help with information and education so you can live your best life with an ostomy.
Whether you're a patient, a caregiver, or a healthcare professional, if you have any questions about Hollister products or services, we can help.
