The key objective of Queensland Stoma Association Inc is to assist persons living with a stoma to achieve a normal quality of life. We do this by providing our members with stoma related information and support as required, and by efficiently carrying out our role as a Stoma Appliance Scheme service provider. We are not medically trained and therefore cannot offer medical advice on the management of a stoma.
The Association is governed by a Committee of Management elected from and by members at the Annual General Meeting held in September of each year. The committee consists of a President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary and General Committee members. Regular committee meetings are held in compliance with our Constitution and members are welcome to attend.
The operational management of the Association is carried out by a small number of skilled part time employees who are assisted by a team of voluntary helpers, most of whom have a stoma. Our volunteers attend the Association on a roster basis determined by the fluctuating needs of the Association. New volunteers are most welcome and encouraged.
