UK-based Survey you may wish to Participate in

Post by Bob Webtech »

UOAA received a request from one of our sister ostomy organizations in the UK to distribute information about a survey on communication practices regarding stoma formation. You may wish to participate in this survey in order to improve representation of responses by ostomates around the world. The information is as follows:

STOPPS Study - STOma formation - the Perception of Patients and Surgeons on communication.

During an exercise conducted by the Association of Coloproctology Great Britain and Ireland, it was found that many patients were unsatisfied with the communication around stoma formation and felt that it was considered, and as such, discussed as a 'last resort'.

Following on from this, we are conducting a study, funded by Bowel Disease Research UK and Ileostomy Association, examining the communication practices around stoma formation - the STOPPS study: STOma formation - the Perception of Patients and Surgeons on communication.

On account of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are conducting our patient and public involvement exercises online. We have devised a questionnaire to explore initial themes around the communication practices of stoma formation as perceived by patients and those around close to them.

We were wondering if you could help disseminate this via the UOAA to help us maximise responses and help shape this important study.
