Brief Summary

The purpose of this study is to learn if the stoma boot camp is a good and effective way to help people adapt to life with a stoma after surgery.

Detailed Description


Bladder cancer is the fifth most common cancer in the USA. The primary treatment for invasive
bladder cancer is a radical cystectomy (RC) with a urinary diversion. Patients that have this
procedure must deal with a stoma that requires daily care and manual skills. A stoma is an
artificial opening that allows urine to pass from the ureters outside the body. Having a
surgery that results in a stoma can dramatically change a person's life.

This study is being done to test a new education session called the stoma boot camp. The
session was created to help people deal with changes in their post-surgery life and living
with a stoma.

The session requires a one time visit to the study site and lasts about two hours.
Participants can bring a support person to the boot camp if they choose. During the two hour
session, nurses will provide teaching, counseling, and hands on practice with an artificial
stoma.
