ITALIAN VERSION

The idea of creating a group of young people to take on the task of promoting activities in line with the mission of F.A.I.S (the Federation of Associations for Incontinence sufferers and Ostomates) to meet the specific needs of young people, who suffer the most from the trauma of the disease, emerged from the experiences and needs of some ostomates who are members of the Federation.

You can cope with it and overcome it! A support network for those in need is undoubtedly a huge help!

The newly created Youth Group relies on FAIS and the member Associations and can count on:

– significant experience in comprehensive support for ostomate patients

– an extensive network throughout Italy through regional and provincial associations

– know-how in managing and promoting projects

– numerous communication channels (website, Facebook, magazine, Youtube, etc.)

We need the cooperation and enthusiasm of young ostomates in order to:

a) Promote the exchange of information and experiences between patients both on a national and international level

b) Implement specific projects related to the problems young people face (e.g. socialisation, sexuality)

c) Promote events (e.g. conventions, workshops, study days)

d) Create a network of one-to-one pre- and post-operative support (visiting or peer counselling)

e) Actively participate in the research and development of new solutions to improve the lives of patients in collaboration with organisations, associations, and companies

f) promoting joint actions with other national and international youth organizations.

 

World Ostomy Day 2012 will be celebrated on the 6 October 2012 and the theme will be “Lets be Heard !!!”. Our Group will be active part of the event.
