The Regina Ostomy Chapter is a non-profit mutual support society for the benefit of people who have had, or are about to have intestinal or urinary diversion surgery. We are a chapter of the Ostomy Canada Society.
Our purpose is:
- To assist people with intestinal or urinary diversions to lead full and productive lives and to provide information and emotional support to their families.
- To create public awareness and understanding about intestinal and urinary diversion surgery and the resulting stoma.
- To provide trained visitors to those who have undergone intestinal and urinary diversions, including preoperative and postoperative visits and/or telephone calls, at the request of the physician or Nurses Specializing in Wound, Ostomy and Incontinence.
