The Bowel Group for Kids is celebrating the second annual awareness month in September. We would appreciate your support in distributing information about two important events please. I have attached the flyers one to be held in Sydney at Centennial Park and the other in Perth at Bold Park Skate Park.
My name is Brooke Batchelor and I am a Clinical Nurse Educator for The Nursing CPD Institute.
I am currently looking for a stomal nurse who may wish to deliver a one-hour webinar to our network of nurses.
The Nursing CPD Institute provides online continuing professional development for nurses across Australasia and has contact with over 25,000 nurses on a weekly basis through our email newsletter.
When speakers partner with us, they can get their message in front of thousands of nurses and directly impact on patient care as a result. In addition to this, speakers can promote the organisation they represent through the webinar and offer further information by directing viewers to their website.
Is this something that you would be open to discussing further?
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Brooke Batchelor, RN, GDTL.

Colostomy Xplained written by doctors, for patients
Many of you would already be familiar with this initiative by Medicine X working in conjunction with a colorectal surgeon, stomal therapy nurses from the AASTN and ostomates from ACSA. It’s an innovative information resource making surgery and treatment considerations of ostomy surgery easier to understand for the 42,000 Australians living with a stoma.
Colostomy Xplained uses an interactive swipe-through story format to follow the journey of a real life patient, and explain surgery and treatment considerations, alongside the role of patient support networks for Australians.
Dr Kim Chilman-Blair, Founder and CEO of Medicine X, the organisation that worked with Robert to tell his story, believes that storytelling is the best way for patients to understand and retain information in order to make serious decisions about their treatment.
“Around 80 per cent of medical information provided by doctors is forgotten straight away. Colostomy Xplained is designed to fill these gaps in a creative and powerful way,” said Dr ChilmanBlair, founder of Medicine X.
Available online at www.colostomyxplained.com.au, on Google Play, iTunes or on a USB-Card, Colostomy Xplained features the story of Robert, a retired retail business owner and grandfather of six. The story follows Robert’s journey of having ostomy surgery, from initial confusion of diagnosis, to the initial struggles to find how to live a life full of possibilities.
Healthcare professionals can order Colostomy Xplained USB-Cards and flyers free of charge by visiting www.colostomyxplained.com.au/usb-order. There will be a link to the app on the AASTN website soon.
Orders are unlimited and there is no cost to clinics or patients. For further information on Colostomy Xplained please visit www.colostomyxplained.com.au
This initiative has been kindly sponsored by ConvaTec.
