Get ready for the NDIS with our program on:
Neurogenic Bladder and Bowel Management featuring Product Prescription Case Studies & Continence Prescription in a changing fund environment
As the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) rolls out (replacing the existing state-based funding over time), continence management within the community is changing. Now that people with a disability are able to exercise choice and purchase their supports individually, healthcare professionals have the responsibility to identify the most appropriate product to meet the needs of the individual to achieve their goals.
The workshop explores continence needs for those with neurological disabilities that result in functional or neurogenic related incontinence. The workshop will focus on urinary and faecal continence management for the person with a disability including a continence assessment and the use of specialised products and aids to suit individual requirements.
The workshop will:
• Provide an overview of continence needs for people with neurological disabilities
• Review nursing standards outlining the framework for practice, including the responsibility and decision making of nurses in relation to product selection
• Decision making and the use of evidence-based practice
• Opportunities to use clinical tools that identify product features that aid continence management
The workshop will provide opportunities to network with colleagues and include case studies specifically related to neurological disabilities.
