Given the daily challenges that unfamiliar environments, food and culture bring, many ostomates find the prospect of travelling with a stoma stressful. Yet with good advice, international travel can be enjoyed, whether experienced for leisure or work purposes. To practice safely, nurses require knowledge of research
evidence, combined with a wealth of practical knowledge, derived from patient experience. This article examines how these types of knowledge can be brought together to ensure that people with a stoma are able to anticipate travel in a more positive way.
