Objective: Evaluating the effectiveness of structured education on patient's knowledge and practice regarding colostomy care. Methods: A quasi-experimental study design (pre–posttest) was utilized to fulfill the aim of the study. The study was carried out in the outpatient surgery clinic at South Egypt Cancer Institute; a nonprobability convenient sample of 60 adult male and female colostomy patients was included in the study. Two tools were utilized; Tool I: A structured interviewing questionnaire sheet, including three parts: Part I: Demographic characteristics of the studied patients, Part II: Assessment of colostomy, and Part III: Patients' knowledge regarding colostomy (pre–post); Tool II: A colostomy care observation checklist (pre/post). Results: A highly statistically significant difference was found regarding total knowledge and practice scores of the studied sample pre- and post-application of the structured patient education.
