Phase one of the study undertook a qualitative exploration of experiences of 12 patients in care of stoma. The Phase Two study translated an essential instrument the Acceptance of Chronic Health Condition (ACHC) (stoma) scale and tested its psychometric properties with 100 patients. The STOMA psychosocial intervention programme in Phase three study was examined using a two-group pre-test and post-test pilot randomised controlled trial with 43 participants. The stoma care self-efficacy, acceptance of the stoma, level of stoma proficiency, length of hospital stay, as well as anxiety and depression, and quality of life were measured.
