TENA - Invest in Continence Webinar Series

Incontinence affects over 70% of care home residents and over 50% of homecare clients. It is important to ensure that we invest the time and resources necessary to ensure that those with incontinence are kept dry and comfortable to minimise pad usage and promote social continence where possible.

To celebrate World Continence Week TENA will run a series of free short webinars on the various elements of continence management.  Hosted by experienced nurses in aged care, homecare and continence, topics include Assessment and Product Selection, Skin Care, and Night-time Incontinence Care.

The list of topics is below. Please feel free to register for one or multiple webinars. We look forward to having you there.

Assessment and Product Selection

Monday 15th June  11.00 - 11.30am AEST

Each resident needs to have an individual assessment for their continence management needs. This thorough assessment will aid you in choosing the right style and absorbency in a continence aid, helping you to avoid unnecessary  product  changes,  leakage and possible skin issues which can occur when poor product choice is made.  In this session learn how to conduct a thorough assessment.
