The British Journal of Nursing (BJN) is a leading peer-reviewed fortnightly journal of high quality clinical research for nurses, by nurses. At BJN, our goal is to provide the nursing community with a prestigious academic platform for cutting edge research and to present it in a clear, accessible style that is enjoyable to read and easily applicable to daily practice.
Given the breadth and reach of the BJN, and in line with our close ties with the ASCN, the BJN also publishes a regular dedicated clinical ‘ASCN Stoma Care Supplement’ three times per year. Each of these special issues contain focussed clinical and evidence-based Stoma Care related papers, which provide practical recommendations based on sound and up-to-date theoretical knowledge. All articles are written by nurses and are subject to peer review by leading authorities in the profession, ensuring that only the best clinical papers and original research appear in the journal.

Our charity helps sufferers of IBD with ostomies regain confidence and self-esteem through our ‘Time for me grants’ and events.
Our grants pay for sufferers, their families and loved ones to get together and do something as simple as a day out, romantic break, family mini holiday etc all in the name of building confidence as so many shut themselves away after stoma surgery. Once they have had their grant they feel empowered to be able to do the small things – like going to the park with their children or going out for a date night. We need to start counting all the wonderful things we can do rather than focusing on negatives. PW strives to help sufferers to have this mantra. We also hold events where IBD ostomates can get together to have a great time whether it be on our annual spa break, summer ball, karting events etc. The bi-product is that these people inevitably talk about their experiences and feel less alone. This is a huge confidence boost in itself. In particulary, I remember at the spa break and 10 ladies with bags got together and we were discussing swim wear and we all decided to wear low rise bikinis and giggled at the thought of so many of us being together and standing tall with our ostomies. PW is a positive charity and is helping people daily.
