About the journal
The Journal of Stomal Therapy Australia (JSTA), the official journal of the Australian Association of Stomal Therapy Nurses, is published quarterly in March, June, September and December each year. It functions as both an educational tool and a means of communication between members.
All Stomal Therapy Nurses have a responsibility to share their knowledge and skills with others, including those in the health care profession, and JSTA is the means of doing this.
The journal publishes original articles and research to refine clinical competencies of the specialty to improve the quality of care. It emphasises knowledge by communication and also facilitates personal and professional growth.
The journal is distributed throughout Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia and China, to stomal therapy nurses, other registered nurses, medical practitioners, hospitals, relevant government departments, medical clinics, universities and health and medical libraries.
