Small family business Comfizz, launch big national campaign at the annual stoma and colorectal nurses conference (ASCN) in Bournmouth Sept 27-29th. The campaign is called ‘Pants To Hernias’ and the aim is to reduce the incidence of hernias in ostomates who are at high risk of this all to common complication. Comfizz are collaborating with stoma nurses, providing literature and evidence for the benefits of support wear as a preventative tool.
Any nurse who joins the campaign will receive all the samples, literature and support they need from Comfizz PLUS access to a free waistband for every stoma patient they see. This way no one leaves hospital without understanding the risks and what they can do to protect themselves.
Support wear is such a cost effective and simple tool, gone are the days when you wait to develop a hernia then try to manage it with a heavy support garment. Soft light and ultra comfortable garments are the way forward for prevention.
The ASCN is an essential conference for nurses to learn from each other, gain knowledge about latest research and share good practise. Over 460 nurses attended the conference, but not all of them can get to every stand, so if you are still in touch with your stoma nurse then let her know about the ‘Pants To Hernias’ campaign. Comfizz would like to thank all the nurses who have joined the campaign so far, the response has been extremely positive, and as a result there is going to be a large number of patients safely in support wear that otherwise might not have been.
