The aims of this report are to educate on the impact of inadequate bladder care, raise awareness of bladder management options, including self-catheterisation, and provide improvement recommendations.
Rizwan Hamid, Chair of The Bladder Interest Group, commented "In this report we provide actionable recommendations for improvement to bladder management. We strongly feel that this is one area where both health care professionals and patients themselves need to come together to tackle the issues that can affect bladder function. We hope this report will encourage healthcare professionals to listen to, support and treat people with bladder issues."
