The me+™ recovery programme, provides advice and support about the importance of movement and physical activity after stoma surgery.
The programme aims to aid recovery, improve long term outcomes and potentially reduce the risk of parastomal hernia. The evidence-based programme and 2-day RCN-accredited nurse education course are the first and only of their kind in stoma care.
The me+™ recovery programme consists of patient materials, including a recovery handbook, video, and online support, combined with a 2-day training course for stoma care nurses. Materials and course content were developed in conjunction with nurses, patients and reviewed by experts in physiotherapy and colorectal surgery.
