Abstract

The aim of nursing care following radical cystectomy and urinary diversion is to support and to inform the patient both in the pre-operative and postoperative period. Physiological and psychological condition, social requirements, general health and mental status of the patient could change in the postoperative period in many patients. The qualified nurse care supplied to the patient is extremely critical to decrease hospital stay; to prevent short and long term complications and to cope with the problems they could experience.
