The rectal and stomal routes for administering analgesics are dis­cussed as alternatives to invasive, parenteral routes when a patient is unable to take medication by mouth. The ET nurse has an important role in reminding members of the health care team about these routes and in teaching patients and family members (i.e., caregivers) to use them properly.
