Survey on Colorectal Disease

Ostomates and caregivers of ostomates, please share your valuable input!

The Ostomy Association of Singapore (OAS) is conducting a survey to understand the needs of members. This information will help us work together to address the services that are needed the most, help us set priorities and in the long term also advocate for policy development.

Please complete the survey here: (For Singapore Only)

We thank you in advance for participating in this survey and for sending your response to us. Together, we can work towards a better quality for life for all ostomates.

Ostomy Awareness Day 2020


Colorectal cancer is the number one cancer in Singapore, with over 1,200 cases each year.

Many who are diagnosed with the condition will have to live with temporary or permanent ostomies.

An Ostomy Awareness Day Webinar will be held on 10 October 2020, Saturday, at 11am. Join us to hear how young ostomates can live a full and active life with a stoma. You will also hear from a young ostomate and a caregiver on how you can manage and overcome the condition.

Register here to book your slot:

This Zoom webinar is organised by Ostomy Association of Singapore, in collaboration with the government and restructured hospitals in Singapore, and Sozo Wound & Stoma Care.

(Note: 1 CPE Point is available for HCPs.)


The second webinar in our Patient & HCP Education Series!

Ostomates are often challenged with ostomy issues like leakage and we know that there is a causality link between leakage and skin issues. Learn more about the common causes of leakage, skin issues and how to manage them through a webinar hosted by OAS in partnership with Coloplast.

Date: 26 Sep 2020
Time: 11.00am via Zoom

All HCPs and Ostomates are invited to the webinar via Zoom.

Up to 78% of people develop a parastomal hernia after surgery to create a stoma, usually within two years of surgery. In many cases, parastomal hernias are treatable with lifestyle changes. Wearing an abdominal support belt can not only help to prevent, but also help ease symptoms once the hernia occurs.

The OAS is holding a webinar in partnership with Omnigon and Intega Healthcare on HERNIA PREVENTION AND MANAGEMENT FOR OSTOMATES.

All doctors and nurses are invited to the webinar, via Zoom to hear from an expert in the field.

Please email us at to register if you are interested. A confirmation will be sent to you upon registration. The Zoom details for the webinar will be sent a few days before the event.

Do share this with any doctors and nurses you know so that they too can benefit from the expert advice.

See you at the webinar!
