This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. The 3rd edition of this popular text covers all aspects of continence, focusing on continence promotion and measurement of outcomes. The core chapters follow a standard structure for ease of use, and case studies are used throughout to link theory to practice.


“The format is logical and easy to read, with excellent use of illustrations and case studies linking theory to practice. This is a much needed resource.”
Ellie Stewart. Nursing Standard. July 2 : vol 22 no 43 : 2008

“The structure is well thought out, giving theoretical underpinning knowledge, treatment options and case studies to link theory and practice – community-based healthcare professionals at all levels can benefit from this book.”
Lynn Freeman,COMMUNITY PRACTITIONER, August 2008 Volume 81 Number 8
