Description / Abstract:


Patients with long-term conditions sometimes experience problems long after they have been discharged from secondary care. For people with stomas, problems can occur with peristomal skin disorders

Since its fi rst publication in 2001, when it was highly commended in the BMA Surgery Section book awards, Abdominal Stomas and Their Skin Disorders has proved to be a very valuable resource to healthcare professionals working in the fi eld of stoma care. This publication has been an important reference source for understanding, diagnosing, and treating patients with stoma-related skin disorders, and the authors are to be congratulated for sharing their wideranging and in-depth experience of the diffi cult skin problems associated with the area around the stoma. Dr. Calum C Lyon and Amanda J Smith have gained recognition by winning awards for their work in the peristomal skin area.

The Ileostomy and Internal Pouch Support Group (IA) is proud to have been involved in the provision of funding and resources for the work in this publication. IA is a national support network for people with ileostomies or internal pouches. Established in 1956 as the Ileostomy Association by a group of people with ileostomies and some members of the medical profession, IA now has 54 local member organizations and a postal group in the United Kingdom and Ireland, managed by volunteers, most of whom have an ileostomy or internal pouch.

With thanks to the authors, to Dansac Limited, and all those involved in this new edition of Abdominal Stomas and Their Skin Disorders.
