Over the last four decades, the ileoanal pouch operation has seen great improvements in surgical technique, pouch configuration, medical management and patient outcomes. However innovation in this area can be daunting for less experienced practitioners and change is not always welcome, especially if costs or risks appear to outweigh potential benefits. This session aims to inform nurses to better support pouch patients and surgical colleagues when innovation is inevitable.
