Ostomy Clinical Compendium

A series of clinical evidence summaries highlighting the importance and benefits of rehabilitation and exercise for stoma patients, pre- and post-surgery.

We know how busy people healthcare professional are, so we’ve taken the time to distil the key findings of these crucial publications into easy-to-read summaries.
We have designed the summaries so that the conclusion is at the beginning, allowing you to access the important information straight away. If you would like to know more information, you can continue to read the rest of the summary. We have divided the compendium into two key sections. The first section contains summaries of published articles regarding exercise post stoma surgery, while the second section consists of hernia risk and management paper summaries.
