Persons with stoma (ostomates) have to contend with substantial changes in bowel functions, dietary habits and body image. Adjusting to these changes could be challenging. Effective management of stoma can help this process. A quantitative study was conducted to assess the self-efficacy of stoma care among patients with stoma. Within a descriptive research design, consecutive sampling was used to recruit ostamates for the study. Data were collected using modified stoma self-efficacy scale. Analysis revealed that 56% had moderate self-efficacy and 43.5% had high self-efficacy. Further studies are needed to generalise the findings. Nurses need to be aware that self-efficacy of stoma care among ostomates can influence their quality of life.
