Inaugural ACE Consumer Panel Meeting

OAS is pleased to be involved in this panel, a small but necessary step in giving healthcare consumers a voice, and consider their inputs when making decisions aimed at making drugs and treatments available and affordable to patients. This is in addition to, amongst other projects, consultation with the panel members on health education materials, both for general purposes, and specific conditions.

Healthy Conversations – Ostomy & Mental Health

Join the first part of Healthy Conversations series – bringing together ostomates, nurses and caregivers. While getting an ostomy can solve many of the physical challenges that made an ostomate sick, it does not instantly heal all the mental anguish in this journey. Hear from expert speakers such as Dr Gilbert Fan and Sister Angela Liew on practical tips to manage mental health as ostomates. Together we have conversations that matter!

Healthy Body, Healthy Peristomal Skin

In our next Patient and Healthcare Education Series, our speakers will share their insights on maintaining a healthy lifestyle with the right ostomy appliance-change routine and the types of exercises that are suitable for ostomates.

While it’s important to have a healthy body and healthy mind, we should not neglect our peristomal skin health. By taking care of your stoma with a good change routine and doing suitable exercises, there is a good chance you can reduce some of the problems you might otherwise have had in relation to leakage.
