Your opportunity to assess peristomal skin conditions in a unique standardized way
Aimed at ostomy care nurses
The Ostomy Skin Tool was developed with cooperation from the professional Coloplast Global Advisory Board, which represents members of highly qualified ostomy care nurses from 12 different countries.
The tool was developed for the DialogueStudy, a global clinical study, to assess the condition of peristomal skin over time. It has been tested in practice by the members of the Coloplast Global Advisory Board and some of their colleagues before being introduced into the DialogueStudy.
The Ostomy Skin Tool consists of two parts; the DET score and the diagnostic guide.
As the Ostomy Skin Tool is a novel, standardized tool for assessing peristomal skin conditions over time, it is vital to understand how the Ostomy Skin Tool works and to prove the reproducibility.
