Selda Karaveli Çakır, Türkan Özbayır

Abstract


Objective: The objective of the study was to determine the effect of preoperative stoma site marking on the health- related quality of life (HRQOL).

Methods: A nonrandomized, quasi-experimental design was used for the study performed from June 2013 to August 2014. The study sample (n:60) included patients for whom a stoma was opened after a planned colorectal surgery. The City of Hope Quality of Life-Ostomy Questionnaire (COHQOL-OQ) was used to measure HRQOL.

Results: The mean age of the participants in the experimental group was 53.5±12.83, 18(60%) had colostomies, mean BMI was 25.46 ± 4.25 and mean age of that of the control group was 58.00 ± 14.22, 19(63.3%) had colostomies, mean BMI was 25.28 ± 5.00.A comparison of the two groups indicates that the sixth-month total score of the patients in the experimental group on (COHQOL-OQ) is higher than that of the control group (p<0.05).

Conclusions: The study results demonstrated that patient who underwent stoma site marking reported higher HRQOL than those who did not.
