The Quality Life Association (QLA), organized in 1985, is a nationwide non-profit association aimed at meeting the special needs of the continent ostomate and to educate others on the latest advances in ostomy options. An annual educational conference is held each year in an environment of sharing and learning that empowers the group as a whole to educate others to the latest advances in ostomy surgery. Membership is open to anyone interested in the Quality Life Association. All continent ostomates are encouraged to join - Barnett (BCIR), Kock, ileoanal, and continent urostomy procedures. Health care professionals, families of ostomates and others are welcome to join and to actively participate in the organization.
