- ConvaTec Group, a leading global medical technology company, has announced the launch of the me+ recovery programme for stoma patients, including a nurse education course which has been accredited by the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) in the UK.

The me+ recovery programme, the latest addition to ConvaTec's holistic and empowering me+ direct-to-consumer programme, provides advice and support about the importance of movement and physical activity after stoma surgery.

The programme aims to aid recovery, improve long term outcomes and potentially reduce the risk of parastomal hernia.

ConvaTec said the evidence-based programme and 2-day RCN-accredited nurse education course are the first and only of their kind in stoma care.
