Webinar Description:
This presentation will discuss the importance of pre-operative stoma site marking for the individual with planned or emergent* ostomy surgery to help enhance the health related quality of life (HRQOL) for patients with an ostomy by decreasing the potential of a poorly sited stoma. This, in turn, decreases the potential for peristomal skin complications and related issues.

Target Audience: Nurses, physical therapists, dietitians, and other healthcare professionals interested in wound care.
