The incidence of people with bowel disease varies in Australia with some, such as inflammatory bowel disease and colon cancer, being common disorders. They are, by nature, anxiety-producing and may cause very uncomfortable symptoms. Current evidence suggests that timely management of these conditions and best practice care is imperative if wellness and quality of life is to be preserved. Nurses frequently connect with patients with disorders of the bowel and have a key role in their support and desired outcomes.
