Stoma Tips is a free biannual magazine full of practical information and inspiring stories to help ostomates live with comfort and confidence.
As an independent and unbiased free magazine, we provide clear, frank and honest advice on ostomy products to help readers find the stoma routine that works best for them.
We also encourage people to open up about their stoma and to break down the stigmas and taboos that can keep them silent. Stoma Tips is a place for ostomates to share stories of things that have made them laugh and smile, as well as the more challenging moments.
Our aim is to help ostomates of all ages and backgrounds live a life that’s as active, social and independent as before.
We thank the Sponsors of Stoma Tips:

Stoma Tips is looking for articles about life with an ostomy. We welcome guides to getting the best out of particular stoma accessories or to navigating challenging situations, as well as personal stories about the highs and lows of life with an ostomy.
You are welcome to contribute an article to any of our four sections:
The style can be chatty or formal, funny or serious, depending on what works best for you. Articles can be anywhere between 400 and 1600 words, and accompanying photos are very welcome. Any scientific claims should make it clear where the information comes from
Articles should be emailed as a Microsoft Word document to the editor, and all images should be sent separately in the highest resolution possible. If you haven’t written before, or if grammar isn’t your strongest point, don’t be put off! The editor is on hand to help with the nuts and bolts of writing.
If you have any ideas or questions, please email the editor at firstname.lastname@example.org
Stoma Tips provides a unique opportunity to showcase your brand and promote your range of products and services alongside highly relevant quality content. Our educational and supportive articles are written and read by people living with a stoma, as well by stoma care nurses.
We are working with the ostomy charity StomaWise to provide its members with the kind of informative publication that they have long demanded, making Stoma Tips the only platform to reach this large and engaged membership.
Stoma Tips is also distributed alongside the British Journal of Nursing and Gastrointestinal Nursing, making it an ideal way to target the professional readership of MA Healthcare’s most recognised nursing journals.
