The management of continence in the adolescent is complex and has to be individualized. The bio-psycho-social model is key in successful implementation of care and ongoing support in the natural progression to personal ownership of their healthcare.

Our aim is to promote an interdisciplinary approach to the holistic management of the adolescent with incontinence - congenital or acquired.
