Webinar
The art and science of care giving associated with dementia and incontinence

April 23, 2021
National Webinar

Overview

This webinar will address care giving associated with dementia and incontinence

The last 20 years has seen a major advance in knowledge about bladder and bowel function and treatment. However, these advances have focused on interventions to minimise or alleviate symptoms, rather than the art and science of continence caregiving, which remain deeply rooted in tradition and routine.

This webinar will illuminate the silenced and concealed nature of incontinence and continence caregiving, the challenges formal and informal carers may encounter, the strategies they employ, and the implications for policy, education and practice.
