Addressing Continence Care Training Needs in Long Term Care

The Canadian Continence Foundation Policy and Research paper published in 2017, led to ongoing successful partnerships. The paper: ‘Continence Training Needs Assessment of Residential Long-Term Care Personal Support Workers’ (English Only), identified key knowledge gaps in the provision of continence care in Long Term Care residences. Ongoing efforts have led to new partnerships and educational programs, we are proud to share that:

Essity, makers of the brand TENA®, and Conestoga College’s Schlegel Centre for Advancing Seniors Care have developed an online educational video and module for unregulated care providers (UCPs; i.e. personal support workers and nursing aides) working in nursing homes to support residents living with functional urinary incontinence.

The video promotes the application of evidence-based and person-centred continence care by introducing UCPs to incontinence and guiding them through best practices using a case study designed to focus on residents' needs.

The images below represent ‘Charlie’ a Long-Term Care resident living with functional urinary incontinence, summarizing application of the TENA® stretch brief in a standing position.

Disclaimer: Choosing to access the video will require you to log-in providing Essity with additional information, which the Canadian Continence Foundation accept no accountability.
