This session will focus on ostomy and the impact on a patient’s quality of life. Although the surgical creation of an ostomy may prolong and improve a patient’s physical condition, their emotional and social well-being may be impacted differently. This session will highlight various QoL experiences that patients may define and experience differently depending on their age, culture, sex, religion, socioeconomic status, and other social determinants of health.
