Colostomy Irrigation DVD

The Colostomy Association has recently produced 2 DVDs - "Colostomy Association And You (an educational DVD for healthcare professionals and patients)" and "Colostomy Irrigation (a reference tool for clinical nurse specialists)"

Irrigation is a method of bowel management that transforms lives! Irrigation can give colostomates a new sense of freedom and control. However, it needs to be discussed with and taught by a stoma care nurse as it is not a technique that suits everybody. The aim of irrigation is for faeces to be passed only when the bowel is irrigated. There is then usually no need for a colostomy pouch to be worn; the stoma may be covered by a cap or for greater peace of mind a small pouch may be worn. Colostomy Irrigation is well established and can be used by patients at home to achieve control over their bowel functions, and it should improve their confidence and quality of life.
