Research Study - Living with an ostomy, dealing with leaks

Researchers at the Nanotechnology and Integrated BioEngineering Centre (NIBEC) at Ulster University have developed an online questionnaire to gather information on living with a stoma and dealing with leaks. Ultimately, the findings from this questionnaire will aid future research into usefulness and usability of an early warning system that can be used to alert the patient to the impending advent of a leak.

It's not the end, it's the beginning

Hannah contacted IA in November 2016 as she was planning to run the Stafford Half Marathon in March 2017, in aid of IA. After Hannah’s mum had received tremendous support from IA both in the run-up to and since surgery, Hannah wanted to give something back. Armed with an IA t-shirt, Hannah has been in training ever since. In her own words, even as a keen runner, she has not run this distance before and it is a massive accomplishment for her.
