Article: Inclusion of dementia in local continence guidance

Drennan V et al (2013) Inclusion of dementia in local continence guidance. Nursing Times; 109: 27, 22-23

“Evidence shows that people with dementia and their families and carers feel health professionals do not always adequately address needs surrounding continence.”

This article examines the guidance individual trusts provide to find out if they include specific guidance on assisting patients with dementia with their continence needs.

Let’s discuss…

  • Does your trust offer dementia-specific continence guidance?
  • Is a loss of continence assumed to be inevitable in patients with dementia?
  • Do you feel confident completing continence assessments and providing this type of care for patients with dementia?
