In February’s 2017 CRC webinar “All Things Ostomy,” Joanna Burgess, BSN, RN, CWOCN presents an informative webinar on living with, or preparing for, an ostomy. Joanna shared insight and advice from her professional work as a wound, ostomy and continence nurse (WOCN), but she also draws from her personal perspective from living with an ostomy.
Joanna covers tips on how to care for your ostomy, how to prepare for surgery, diet and nutrition, ostomy reversal, and more!
