Providing quality care to incontinent residents with comorbidities is complex and crucial to their wellbeing. This webinar will look at the importance of a comprehensive assessment of an individual’s incontinence and the relationship between their incontinence and comorbidities. It will also explore the impact of treatment for a variety of common conditions found in older Australians and their incontinence.
In the wake of the Royal Commission, can you afford to miss this opportunity to increase the quality of care for your residents? Our expert educators have put this webinar together to help you better understand the complexities of the subject matter and build on your standard of care.
