MIRANDA, Liliana Sofia Grilo; CARVALHO, Amâncio António de Sousa  and  PAZ, Elisabete Pimenta Araújo. Quality of life of ostomized person: relationship with the care provided in stomatherapy nursing consultation. Esc. Anna Nery [online]. 2018, vol.22, n.4, e20180075.  Epub Oct 08, 2018.

To analyze the relationship between the Quality of Life (QoL) and the stomatherapy nursing consultation.


Descriptive-correlational study with 100 ostomized adult participants, to whom a form was applied. The data were treated with SPSS software version 20.0.


Most ostomized (67%) presented a positive perception of QoL. This differed significantly (p < 0.05) between the types of ostomy and previous preparation in the consultation, as the colostomy patients and the individuals who booked the appointment of the stoma previously during the consultation had a better QoL.


There is a statistical relationship between QoL, the type of ostomy and the participation in the stomatherapy nursing consultation, demonstrating the positive influence of nursing care for the ostomized. The study reinforces the importance of consultation for the adaptation of ostomized people to the new condition and improvement of their QoL.
