Abstract

Introduction

In recent years, there has been a significant increase in the number of patients with rectal carcinoma. In a large percentage of cases, the treatment is operative by colostomy, which may be permanent or temporary. This leads to a number of changes in the patients' daily life, lifestyle, work capacity, and psycho-emotional state. The quality of life and adaptation of these patients are largely determined by specific training and awareness of the management of colostomy.

Aim

The purpose of this study is to identify the need for specific patient training in the management of a colostomy.

Results and Discussion

A survey conducted amongst colostomy patients in the surgical wards of two of the multiprofile hospitals on the territory of Sliven for the period May - September 2018 found that a higher share was attributable to men – 73.33%. The age limit is high - the youngest of the respondents is 21 years old and the oldest is 82 years old. Most of the patients surveyed (80%) cannot serve themselves. The patients' specific needs are mainly related to the need for additional information on choosing the right consumables and practical training (33.34%); psychological support (46.66%), and assistant (26.68%).

Conclusion

Further specific, theoretical and practical training of patients with colostomy is needed.
