What is Catheter & Stoma Care Training?
Catheter and stoma care training covers all the element your staff will need to know about supporting someone with a catheter or stoma. There are several types of urinary catheter, from urethral, to supra-pubic to intermittent. Knowing how to care for these not only minimises the risk of infection, but also other complications which could occur.
There aren't as many types of stomas, however caring for them can prove more complicated, depending on the individual involved. Ensure your team know how to support a service user, looking for signs of blockages, damage to the surrounding skin and more is essential.
What Are The Benefits of This Course?
There are plenty of benefits to undertaking this course, from your staff understanding the reasons behind why catheters and stoma have been put in place to how to prevent & recognise infections. Other benefits include understanding the common issues and how to resolve them.
Through effective care interventions, your team can carryout safe and effective individulised care. Whether your team work in a hospice, care home or someone's own home, early and appropriate care intervention can prevent hospitalisation, trauma and deterioration for the service user; helping you provide a safer, effective and more responsive service.

Training with the Leicestershire Training Team
Training is one of the most important aspects of anyone's working life, however it is commonly a source of boredom, resulting in a poor retainment of information. This is why we started thinking about training differently. For us, the training needs to be engaging as well as informative, so what you learn today, will be remembered tomorrow.
Training with us is a unique experience, with a potent mixture of fun, interactivity, real life experience and expert advice. We only use trained professionals, such as our nurse trainers, to deliver our training. This way you are taught by someone with real hands on experience.
