UOAA Ostomy Care Guides

The publications below, many available in both English and Spanish, were produced originally by the United Ostomy Association (UOA), which was the volunteer-based national ostomy organization in the United States from 1962 to 2005. UOA shut down in Fall of 2005 and released its copyrights on these publications. Many of the documents have been revised by the United Ostomy Associations of America (UOAA), which is the new national ostomy organization formed to fill the void left by UOA's dissolution. However, some documents still include contact information for the old UOA. Note that although UOA doesn't exist any more, its old toll-free number (800-826-0826) reaches UOAA now, and UOA's old website URL (www.uoa.org) redirects to UOAA's website.

Note: The links below all access resources from the UOAA National Website.
