Debra Day has been a stomal therapy nurse for almost 17 years. She has been working in this capacity for Central Coast Local Heath District for 14 years. Debra attended and presented at the World Council of Enterostomal Therapy (WCET) Congress in Gothenberg, Sweden in 2014, and at the same event in Kuala Lumpar, Malaysia in April this year. Debra is the current president of the NSW Branch of the Australian Association of Stomal Therapy Nurses. Debra's love of colorectal surgery goes back a long way to her first two years of post-graduate nursing at the Sydney Adventist Hospital. She is passionate about her role; it gives her a buzz to know that stomal therapy can make a significant difference in people’s lives and assist them to adjust to life-changing surgery.
