Incontinence is a prevalent condition among nursing home residents and can cause hygienic problems, skin problems and may lead to impairment in Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). It also has implications for resident dignity, as well as being a professional challenge for the caregivers involved.
This webinar will focus on pelvic floor health and ways to support continence and continence care for residents of nursing homes and other long-term care settings. Incontinence is often accepted as an inevitable part of aging, but attendees will learn it does not have to be!
Primarily skilled nursing facilities, but with content for all healthcare settings related to continence and continence care.
Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Describe the types of urinary incontinence and risk factors associated with each
- Review evidenced-based approaches for identifying, assessing and treating urinary incontinence in-long term care
- Discuss various nursing interventions that can be implemented by the long-term care nurse for management of incontinence
This event has been approved for 1 contact hour for nurses by the North Dakota Board of Nursing.
