Course Outline

Our comprehensive Continence and Catheter Care training course is designed for nurses, team leaders and care assistants across all settings. Incontinence can be a silent struggle, isolating individuals and eroding their confidence. People living with a dementia, learning disability or a physical condition may struggle with continence. Sometimes this is a temporary issue, as a result of an infection, psychological trauma or recent surgery. Often for people receiving care and support, it can be an ongoing issue that requires a sensitive, yet pragmatic approach.

Sensitive continence and catheter care can transform the lives of people, especially when communication issues make it difficult for people using services to alert care staff that they need help.

This course begins with an exploration of the profound effects of urinary incontinence on a person’s life, self-esteem, and overall wellbeing. Urinary incontinence can discourage people from taking part in activities or go out, in case they have an “accident”. Gradually, people can become increasingly isolated, but effective continence and catheter care can transform quality of life and improve wellbeing.

As a participant, you will delve into strategies for promoting continence, gaining valuable insights into fostering a supportive environment. You will learn how to recognise signs that a person needs additional support with continence, and how to approach the issue in a way that avoids embarrassment.

Explore the potential risks associated with catheterization and master effective management techniques. Get hands-on experience as you explore various types of catheters commonly used in diverse health and social care settings.

Through practical sessions, or video footage you’ll learn the essential skills of emptying and changing catheter bags, with the opportunity to apply your knowledge in a simulated classroom environment. The course concludes with an engaging discussion on common challenges related to continence and catheter care, offering practical solutions to enhance your expertise.

Join us to elevate your proficiency, empower your caregiving abilities, and make a meaningful impact on the lives of those who you support. Commission our Continence and Catheter Care training course today and be a catalyst for positive change in health and social care settings.
