Pouch Information Day
Whether you’re new to pouch surgery, someone who has been living with a pouch for a while or someone considering pouch surgery then our Pouch Information Day is for you. The Pouch Information Day is open to anyone interested in learning more about internal pouches. Whatever your situation, it’s a great day that provides an opportunity to learn more about pouches, both from a medical and lifestyle perspective.
The day is usually a mix of surgical presentations, presentations from a pouch nurse on topics such as after care and managing your pouch and an opportunity to talk to people who are living with a pouch already.
Additionally there will be time during the day to chat with others in a similar position and discuss what they are considering or how they are managing with a pouch.
Our next Pouch Information Day will be listed on our Events page however due to Covid-19 we regret that all planned Pouch Information Days have had to be cancelled. We hope to bring you another informative day in 2021.
Keep in touch with us via our social media pages so you know when our events are running again.
In the meantime, take a look at some of the material shared by presenters from previous pouch events on our past events page.
NOTE: Information contained within the presentational material correct at time of presentation. Some images within the presentations may be of a surgical nature and may be considered too graphic for some.
