The Latest Decision Support Tool from WOCN

Introducing the WOCN Interventions Post Cather Removal (iPCaRe) Decision Support Tool

Despite recent advances in continence management for adults, evidence guiding bladder management strategies following discontinuation of an indwelling urinary catheter in the acute care setting is particularly sparse. To address this gap and guide best-practice, the WOCN Society has developed a consensus-based algorithm for acute care settings focusing on patient assessment and the selection and use of bladder management strategies after indwelling urinary catheter removal. The Interventions Post Cather Removal (iPCaRe) clinical tool will fill the gap in evidence available for first-line and wound, ostomy and continence (WOC) specialty practice nurses and guide optimal bladder management following the removal of an indwelling urinary catheter.
