Bowel Management Training


This bowel management training aims to raise awareness and knowledge in relation to bowel management and incontinence.

This course is ideal for care staff responsible for the day to day care of individuals who require assistance with bowel management.

Effective bowel management is especially important for spinal injury patients and those at risk of autonomic dysreflexia.

The course has a base level of theory with practical modules which can be added on as required.

As I have told others... It is the best, most informative training I have ever attended
