Our population is aging. Problems with incontinence (both urinary and fecal) are increasing along with that aging population. All nurses are expected to be continence care nurses regardless of the level of care they work in. Research is increasingly showing how incontinence affects the skin and increases the risk for pressure, friction and moisture damage that can be painful and chronic. In this session, learn how to embrace being the Continence nurse you are (if not you, then who) with a review of current tools developed by the Society and up to date research on the impact your continence knowledge has on the quality of life for most of the patients you serve.
WOC nurses will embrace and engage the Role of the Continence nurse in their daily practice.
