The Australian Association of Stomal Therapy Nurses Inc. is the professional organization of Stomal Therapy Nurses in Australia.

One of the Association's major objectives is the promotion of quality care for a wide range of people with specific needs. These needs may be related to ostomy construction, urinary or faecal incontinence, wounds with or without tube insertion and breast surgery. Patients/clients across the life span are provided with preventative, acute, rehabilitative and continuing care as required.

Another objective is the maintenance and improvement of professional standards in relation to Stomal Therapy Nursing Practice to the highest degree possible.

Recognition of the need for and encouragement of the development of specialist expertise in the field of Stomal Therapy Nursing underpins the Standards for Stomal Therapy Nursing Practice.
