O205 - Helping Teens Process the Ostomy Event

Jun 3, 2018 4:25pm ‐ Jun 3, 2018 5:25pm

Standard: $5.00


This session presents a theoretical framework that was developed from a qualitative study with teens (13-18 years of age) examining how teens process the event of having an ostomy. The theory sheds light on how teens process the experience of having an ostomy and how healthcare providers can help the teen move thru the process to get back to their desired “normal” state.

Learning Objective:

  • The learner will be able to verbalize one concept in the theoretical framework and identify one strategy for use when working with teens processing the event of having an ostomy
