Author information

  • 1Faculty of Health and Human Science, Thames Valley University, Berks.


The Eton Scale Risk Assessment for Constipation (Fig 1) will be officially launched at the Association for Continence Advice conference in Telford next week. This follows successful evaluation of the tool by nurses, who found that it was easy and simple to use. Further testing of the tool's sensitivity and reliability is currently being undertaken, and a randomised controlled trial has been planned for later in the year.
