Elaine Drew - December 12, 2012 11:21 AM

Incontinence, the loss of bladder or bowel control, affects many seniors and is a major cause of embarrassment. Fear of social stigma prevents many elderly people from discussing this problem. Many choose to ignore incontinence and miss out on opportunities for early assessment and diagnosis.

Family Caregiver Alliance (FCA), a non-profit organization whose goal is to help provide support to caregivers all across the United States has announced a Webinar dealing with this issue. “Moving Beyond the Leakages:  Practical Strategies to Manage Incontinence” has been scheduled for December 13th, 2012 (Tuesday) between 2:00 – 3:00 pm (EST).

The Webinar will focus on:

•    Understanding the challenges and issues related to caring for an older adult with urinary incontinence
•    Learning practical tips to manage urinary incontinence
•    Identifying strategies to promote toileting safety, reduce risk of falls, and care for skin
•    Learning strategies to manage stress surrounding incontinence

Nicole Davis, a board certified Adult and Gerontological Nurse Practitioner with expertise in urinary incontinence, will be the Guest Speaker. Davis received a BS in Nursing from New York University, and a MS in Adult Primary Care and Gerontological Nursing from Duke University. Davis is also a PhD candidate at the Byrdine F. Lewis School of Nursing and Health Professions, Georgia State University. She was recently named a National Hartford Centers of Gerontological Nursing Excellence Patricia G. Archbold Scholar.
