This course is aimed at nurses and physiotherapists who wish to develop basic skills in the assessment, management and treatment of lower bowel dysfunction including constipation, difficult defaecation and anal incontinence

This educational course will be delivered by clinicians working in the speciality of lower bowel dysfunction. The course content
