Inside the Episode

Natalie and Jess discuss OT’s role in ostomy care. We review the different types of ostomies and indications for their use. We also discuss ways to manage ostomies during therapy activities, how to teach clients to manage their ostomies independently, and precautions for activities following surgery.
