Swag bagIf you or a loved one is living with a permanent or temporary ostomy, you are invited to join us for a complimentary webinar on October 17th at 11:00 am. From the comfort of your own home, you’ll learn the latest in ostomy care from industry experts from Hollister, Convatec and Coloplast.

Living with an Ostomy

It is estimated that some 70,000 people living in Canada have an ostomy, and there are approximately 13,000 new ostomy surgeries performed each year. These are often done as part of cancer surgery, but there can also be other reasons, including inflammatory bowel disease, congenital abnormalities and trauma. There are several types of ostomy, but all have in common the fact that they are designed to allow the discharge of waste from the body through a surgically created opening.

People with ostomies can be any age and come from all walks of life.
Although the idea of living with an ostomy can sound scary and inconvenient, today’s ostomy products are designed to make your life as easy as possible. People with ostomies can live full and active lives, including going to work, playing sports, and sexual activity.

In our virtual ostomy event, you will have the opportunity to ask all of your questions about living with an ostomy and about ostomy care and supplies. Our experts will cover everything from day to day living, to avoiding accidents, to skin care, and emotional support.

Ostomy Supplies

The primary ostomy supplies typically include an ostomy pouch (either drainable or with a closed end), as well as a skin barrier or wafer.

Accessories include ostomy belts, ostomy deodorant and stoma powder. For those who work out or sweat a lot, they may also want to use a tape that is designed for use during sports.
