COURSE Details
Bowel Care and Management
Course Length:

3 hours

Maximum Number of Attendees:

12

Course Description:

People with long term catheters are typically at more risk of requiring bladder washouts. This is because of the build-up of sediment in the bladder that can cause blockages in the tubing. Poor nutrition and hydration can have an impact on how much sediment is produced. Where urinary flow is impeded it can lead to further health implications.

The procedure of how to perform bladder washouts will be demonstrated and can be practised on a manikin.
