Ostomy Home Skills Kit Broadcast Rights for Hospitals
The American College of Surgeons Surgical Patient Education
Program offers an Ostomy Home Skills Kit that supports patients by
providing education and simulation materials for learning and practicing the skills
needed for optimal postoperative recovery. Evaluation of data from the
program shows improved patient satisfaction, as well as reduced complications
and expenditures. Health care professionals have rated the kits as being effective
in preparing patients for self-care and effective in reducing time spent
educating patients. This 30-minute video program includes an overview of the surgical
procedure and realistic demonstration of emptying, removing, sizing, and
applying a new pouch. Pouch options, skin care, problem solving skills, and
emergency management are also discussed. This video is an excellent teaching
tool for both lay and professional audiences.
The American College of
Surgeons is now granting single hospital networks access to broadcast the licensed video program.

colostomy/ileostomy kit). Each kit includes: one DVD, one booklet, two
