Continence care in residential aged care

Researchers at the National Ageing Research Institute (NARI) are inviting residential aged care staff with experience caring for residents with continence care needs to complete a brief anonymous survey about the importance of several continence care practices.

The survey is part of a larger project being conducted by NARI in collaboration with the Continence Foundation of Australia to develop a better understanding of the community’s expectations about the type of care people in residential aged care should receive for bladder and bowel health.

The findings will be used to develop a best practice model of continence care for residential aged care. The survey can be completed online using the link below.

Those who would prefer to receive a hard copy survey (with a return postage paid envelope) or to participate in a telephone interview or online workshop to discuss their opinions in greater detail should contact Dr Joan Ostaszkiewicz at j.ostaszkiewicz@nari.edu.au.

The survey closes on 4 September 2020.

This study has been approved by the Austin Health Human Research Ethics Committee HREC/63029/Austin-2020.
