COSTA, Idevânia Geraldina y MARUYAMA, Sônia Ayako Tao. Implementation and evaluation of a teaching plan for the auto-irrigation of colostomy: a case study. Rev. Latino-Am. Enfermagem [online]. 2004, vol.12, n.3, pp. 557-563. ISSN 0104-1169. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-11692004000300015.
With a view to describing and evaluating the implementation of a teaching plan for the auto-irrigation of colostomy and reporting on the perceptions of colostomized patients related to auto-irrigation, this case study was developed at the colostomy out-patient clinic of the Júlio Müller University Hospital, Cuiabá, Brazil, from February to March 1997. The teaching plan helped the patients to learn about the irrigation technique and social rehabilitation.
