FREE Continence Management Online Training Course
Hands up if you have ever had an incident with your bladder or bowels? A water leak in the supermarket or an uncomfortable bottom moment in a DIY store? Yep, me too! Most of us have an embarrassing or funny story about an occasional accident where we got caught short but, while we jest, there is a very serious side to managing continence.
Whilst the odd incident may cause amusement for some of us, imagine experiencing this every day or even every few hours. Living with incontinence, whether short term or permanently, is actually no fun at all. Whilst it is not always a life-threatening condition, it can have a serious impact on a person’s quality of life.
In this free online training course, we explain what healthy habits look like and what issues to look out for. We will also provide practical guidance on how to support individuals to manage incontinence. Are you ready for some anatomy?
