Introducing "Colostomy Explained"

"Colostomy Explained" is a resource that has been developed by MedicineX in collaboration with the Australian Council of Stoma Associations Inc, Colorectal Surgeons, Stomal Therapy Nurses, patients and other interested organisations. "Colostomy Explained" explains colostomy to new and prospective ostomates and their families in a simple and easy to understand manner through storytelling. 

Colostomy Explained can be accessed online or by downloading the Medicinex APP from the Apple APP store or Google Play.

The development of "Colostomy Explained" has been made possible through the generous support of Convatec (Aust) Pty Ltd.
