Summary of "Creating awareness of the antegrade continence enema procedure and why nurses need to know about it."

The antegrade continence enema (ACE) procedure is mostly associated with children. Many children who underwent this are now entering adulthood and require expert advice and support from nursing and medical services. This article describes how a poster was created to make health professionals aware of this procedure and provide advice for troubleshooting. The type of flushing solution used for irrigation still seems to be selected by trial and error, depending on what suits each individual. There is little evidence in the literature on skin management for patients practising ACE, so it is pertinent to apply the best evidence available. Adult stoma care nurses will need a detailed understanding of this technique and management in the future, as it is likely that they will be called upon for support and advice.
