ConvaTec Virtual Patient Summit: Celebrating World Ostomy Day
"Ostomates' Rights Are Human Rights - anytime and anywhere" - World Ostomy Day 2021 Theme.
Join our Patient Summit that will bring ostomates, nurses and caregivers together to lead open discussions that will be patient rights-focused fostering awareness, education, and advocacy – Together we will have conversations that matter!
Did you know that by knowing your patient rights and feeling empowered and exercising those rights – you can take those situations where you felt down and make it positive. Think, “This is MY life now. I have the right to be me.”
Learn about your local and international ostomy support resources, understand your patient rights, and feel empowered to exercise those rights.
