Sjaak Sinnige, nurse and coordinator of Anneke ICS Home Care has successfully completed the course “Handling of Stoma” with Aulascience, an educational centre accredited by the National Health System and destinated to medical staff.
The course contains technical knowledge of materials and how to help and teach the patients to become familiar with the stoma.
Sjaak says: “The patient support preferably has to start before the operation. It is important to prepare the patient before surgery and then familiarize with the stoma. It’s a long process but professional support can prevent complications.
Many patients are already sick long before the operation. The good thing is that after the stoma they can start again with a healthy life! “
