Brief Title: Intensive Preoperative Ostomy Education for the Radical Cystectomy Patient

Intensive Preoperative Ostomy Education for the Radical Cystectomy Patient


  • Org Study ID: STUDY00142039
  • Secondary ID: N/A
  • NCT ID: NCT03462667
  • Sponsor: University of Kansas Medical Center


The purpose of this study is to learn if the stoma boot camp is a good and effective way to help people adapt to life with a stoma after surgery.


Bladder cancer is the fifth most common cancer in the USA. The primary treatment for invasive bladder cancer is a radical cystectomy (RC) with a urinary diversion. Patients that have this procedure must deal with a stoma that requires daily care and manual skills. A stoma is an artificial opening that allows urine to pass from the ureters outside the body. Having a surgery that results in a stoma can dramatically change a person's life.

This study is being done to test a new education session called the stoma boot camp. The session was created to help people deal with changes in their post-surgery life and living with a stoma.

The session requires a one time visit to the study site and lasts about two hours. Participants can bring a support person to the boot camp if they choose. During the two hour session, nurses will provide teaching, counseling, and hands on practice with an artificial stoma.
