In February SIA launched a new healthcare professional study day aimed at building on their work to promote best practice and raise the standards of bowel care across the SCI community. This event, Continence Matters: Introduction to Managing the Neurogenic Bowel in Spinal Cord Injury, was very successful, and SIA are delighted that a second session has been confirmed to take place in Manchester on Tuesday 15 October 2019 (please note the date has changed from the original one of 8 October). 

Through our Managing the Neurogenic Bowel training days, and other work such as the issue of the NHS Improvement Patient Safety Alert focusing on safer bowel care for patients at risk of Autonomic Dysreflexia in July 2018, SIA continues to work tirelessly to raise awareness of the importance of good neurogenic bowel management for people with spinal cord injury (SCI). This study day, which is aimed at healthcare professionals interested in or working with individuals with neurogenic bowel dysfunction as a result of SCI, will: 

  • Increase the delegates’ understanding of the impact of SCI on bowel function
  • Raise awareness of appropriate management methods including the opportunity to view suitable products through demo sessions with invited exhibitors
  • Provide information on how the delegate can improve bowel care provision for individuals with SCI

Alongside presentations from clinical experts including our SCI Nurse Specialists, the exhibitors will facilitate demos of their transanal irrigation systems with groups of delegates throughout the day. We are pleased to confirm that MacGregor Healthcare and Wellspect HealthCare are confirmed as exhibitors at this event. 

The current agenda and a link to the online booking form can be found on the SIA website.

Places are limited, and this event is sure to prove popular, so do get in touch soon if you would like to book or need more information.
