The ACS Division of Education Surgical Patient Education Program offers an Ostomy Home Skills Kit supporting patients with education and simulation materials to learn and practice the skills needed for optimal postoperative recovery. Evaluation data of the program supports improved satisfaction, reduced complications, and expenditures. Professionals have rated the kits as effective in preparing patients for self-care, as well as effective in reducing time spent in education. The 30-minute DVD 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 included. This is an excellent teaching video for both patients and professional staff.
