Internal and external continence containment options will be discussed, including indications/contraindications and complications that can result from their use. The majority of the session will be spent applying internal and external different fecal management systems to models so as the attendee can gain experience with handling equipment they may not be exposed to every day.

Participants will be able to demonstrate application of one internal and one external fecal containment device.

In this session, you will not only learn about devices designed to discreetly collect urine from experts, but you will have a chance to actually use them in simulations. This will be a fun, lively session where you might even win a prize while learning important management options for your patients with temporary or intractable urinary incontinence.

Participants will be able to offer and more confidently teach the use of a greater variety of external urine collection devices to their patients.
