About this course

In this section


Issues relating to continence have far reaching consequences for individuals, their families, health professionals and society. The promotion of continence and the management of incontinence is often a neglected area of general healthcare practice. Clinical effectiveness in this area is critically dependent upon individualised assessment that identifies the type and cause of incontinence and which is subsequently followed by tailored interventions. This module is designed to enable practitioners to obtain the knowledge necessary for them to undertake this activity.
