Physiotherapists, nurses, colorectal surgeons, coloproctologists, clinical scientists.
Faecal incontinence and bowel evacuation difficulties occur in about 18% of the population and have a considerable impact on health cost and quality of life. First line management is conservative treatment due to low risk and high rate of success with completion of therapy. This workshop will provide an overview of the published literature with strong focus on level 1 evidence, on the anatomy, pathophysiology and conservative management of bowel dysfunction. This workshop will also focus on the ‘hands on’ training on both Transanal irrigation and Rectal Balloon Training. It is also an opportunity to continue to raise awareness of bowel dysfunction in a society that predominantly focuses on urinary incontinence.
