This innovative handbook bridges the gap between the colorectal surgeon, the stoma nurse and the dermatologist. It addresses the questions of what pathology is involved, what can be done by nurses, when to refer to a dermatologist, and what can be done by a dermatologist. Now in its second edition, the book has been revised throughout and contains new information on nutrition and child stoma patients.
