Welcome To Our Website
Welcome to the web site of the Irish Stoma Care and Colorectal Nurses Association (ISCCNA).
The Irish Stoma Care Nurses Association was set up in 1984 by six stoma care nurses who wanted to provide a forum for nurses caring for people who may need or who had a stoma. They also wanted to increase awareness amongst health care professionals of the need to provide these people with specialist nursing care.
Nearly three decades later there are 30 members and the name of the Association has been changed to reflect the work that these specialist nurses carry out with people who have a wide range of colo rectal conditions.
The ISCCNA is fully committed to providing education and support both to people who suffer from colorectal disease and those who have a stoma and their families and carers. We also hope to act as a resource for anyone in the health profession who requires information and guidance.
