Caring for the adolescent (13-18 years of age) with an ostomy presents many challenges. The purpose of this article is to provide strategies to assist the WOC nurse in minimizing the potential impact on growth and development for adolescents (13-18 years of age) with an ostomy. This is relevant to the WOC nurse since it is estimated that between 6% and 14% of all adolescents have symptoms of irritable bowel disease, and many will require an ostomy. Thus the WOC nurse will be called upon to provide care to this age group. This article discusses normal adolescent growth and development and provides strategies to support the normal growth and development.
