Incontinence: Strategies For Patients And Clinicians
Speakers: Chantal Pinsent, MScPT and Keeley Smith, BScPT. are physical therapists and experts in their field.
Join us for a conversation about incontinence!
Incontinence — loss of bladder control — is a common and often embarrassing problem. The severity ranges from occasional leaking when running, coughing or sneezing to a sudden, urgent, uncontrollable need to urinate. Incontinence often occurs with aging and after having a baby, but there are options beyond leak protection.
Our expert panel will provide patients and clinicians with a physical therapy approach to assessing, diagnosing and treating incontinence. You will learn about accessing care, self-management techniques, and having better conversations about incontinence – with your physiotherapist, doctor, and family network.
