Continence Service

Incontinence is the involuntary loss of bladder or bowel control. It is a common condition, affecting up to four million Australians, and does not discriminate between age groups or socio-economic status. Incontinence impacts significantly on the quality of life of those experiencing it as well as their carers. It is important to remember that incontinence can be treated, effectively managed and often cured.

Our service is managed by a Nurse Practitioner in conjunction with a Clinical Nurse. Staff members are trained in this specialty and provide both inpatient and outpatient services.

The Continence Nurse Advisors are available for inpatient consultations for bladder and bowel dysfunction as well as incontinence-associated skin conditions. They are available to provide tertiary level advice and consultation on referral from specialists and EMHS/WACHS continence services.

You can find assessment and management information on Continence conditions at Adult Urinary Incontinence Requests – Community HealthPathways Western Australia (external website).
