    • Featured Article: Talking to a Loved One About Incontinence: Incontinence is a condition that can lead to some awkward situations for the 13 million people in the United States that deal with it. It can be even more awkward for their family members to communicate to them that there is an issue in the first place. Learn more about your role and how to address incontinence.



    • How Diet Affects Bladder Control: Although there is no special diet to cure incontinence, certain foods and beverages are thought to contribute to bladder leakage. Their effect on the bladder is not always understood, but you may want to see if eliminating one or all of the irritants listed in this article improves bladder control.


    • Webinar: Managing Fecal and Urinary IncontinenceIn this recorded webinar, presented by Capital Nursing Education, the focus is on the challenging problem that incontinence poses for patients and caregivers. Both urinary and fecal incontinence can lead to skin breakdown, infection and complications.
