ASCN UK is delighted to announce that there is a new addition to their Guidelines portfolio, the convexity guideline.
The use of Convexity is the latest recommendation to be included in the ever increasing catalogue of valuable resources available from ASCN UK and are now available in the members area.
This recommendation has taken a great deal of time to come to fruition, as there are so many varying factors and situations that can impact on decision making. This recommendation has been written based on the best supporting evidence available to guide novice Stoma Care Nurses in the use of convex products and support decision making.
The recommendation consists of three Appendices that offer a guide when assessing a patient for the possible use of a convex product, a suggestion of clinical situations where convexity may be considered and a guide for best practice when choosing a suitable convex product. We hope that our members will find this a helpful guide for clinical practice; it is not intended to offer a specific brand of convexity.
