Celebrate World Ostomy Day at ConvaTec’s Virtual Patient Summit on Friday, October 1, 2021.

Join ConvaTec for a live discussion with ostomates, nurses and other healthcare professionals at their two session, one-day virtual summit.

The second session “Creating a Healthy Bond: Healthcare Support for Your Patients” will be held at 3 PM Eastern Time, 2 PM Central Time.

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. Scheduled panelists include Lorena Eltz, Patient Advocate; Lorraine Grover, Psychosexual Nurse Specialist; and Allison Rosen, UOAA’s World Ostomy Day Champion
