MARQUES ANDRADE DE SOUZA, Ana Paula; BESERRA DA COSTA SANTOS, Iolanda; GUIMARAES OLIVEIRA SOARES, Maria Júlia  and  OLIVEIRA DE SANTANA, Ivana. Clinical epidemiological profile of patients seen and enumerated in The Center Paraibano of Ostomized João Pessoa (Brasil). Gerokomos [online]. 2010, vol.21, n.4, pp.183-190. ISSN 1134-928X.

Descriptive study with a quantitative approach realized in the Center Paraibano of Ostomized Patients of João Pessoa. The sample included 19 participants registered in the service of ostomized patients, using for the withdrawal of information a form, with information of social and demographic characteristics of the carriers of colostomy and his needs. The results report on personal aspects of the carrier of colostomy, and specially of the negative aspects for some needs in daily life, in relation with the psychological, social and biological needs, of elimination and integrity of the skin around the ostomy. The results of this investigation support the need of the existence of the group of support with the participation of health professionals for the diverse specialities implied, in order to reduce most of the side effects of the colostomies.

Keywords : Patient with colostomy; needs; nursing; support group.
