Webinar Description:
Healthy peristomal skin should be intact with no signs of redness, warmth, itching or pain. Poor skin health surrounding the stoma like Peristomal Moisture Associated Skin Damage (PMASD) can lead to leakage, odor, pain, discomfort, additional healthcare costs and decreased health related quality of life post ostomy surgery. Unfortunately, most people with ostomies can experience peristomal skin complications at some point in their lives. The good news is that there is plenty of actions that can be taken to keep the peristomal skin healthy and avoid these problems.
