These kits provide patients with comprehensive, interactive materials to enable learning and practicing of the skills needed for good postoperative recovery. Patients that use the kit have more confidence in managing their ostomy than patients who do not use the kit. Further, those patients also use 42% fewer additional services(1) and 50% decrease in emergency room use(1), compared with those not using the kits in their first three weeks post-discharge.
