17. Resources and Supplies

Print

The patient is able to identify supplies and community resources available after discharge.


Each province, state and country will vary in their financial support of patients with ostomies. Prior to discharge, it is important to discuss financial reimbursement/ insurance concerns, and how and where to purchase supplies. Ostomy supplies should be readily available worldwide.

There are numerous resources available for patients with ostomies. These include Enterostomal Therapists, support groups and associations, literature, Web sites, videos, and ostomy supplier support.
