Download What is a Stomal Therapy Nurse?Our philosophy

We recognise the need for expertise in this specialised field of nursing, therefore we believe educational programmes should be available to prepare Registered Nurses to effectively assume the role of Stomal Therapy Nurse.

All Stomal Therapy Nurses have a responsibility to share their knowledge and skills with others, including those in the health care profession.

Stomal Therapy Nurses encourage personal and professional growth, foster knowledge by communication, and participate in research programmes to refine clinical competencies of the specialty to improve the quality of care.
