Session 2, 3pm EST: Creating a Healthy Bond: Healthcare Support for Your Patients:
Healthy bonds in life are all around us. But there may be times it feels difficult to bond. Do you know, or do your patients know, about the resources available for support? Whether that is a support with the nutritionist so they can learn about fiber intake or, with an exercise therapist to get guidance on hernia prevention. It could even be the support a therapist can provide navigating new emotions in your personal relationships. There are healthy bonds that can be built between an ostomate and their healthcare professionals.
Create a strong bond with your patients and healthcare providers. Get to know the different types of pre- and post-operative support available.
