Abstract

Community nurses are often involved in the assessment of symptoms of incontinence and the provision of continence aids. However, it is less clear to what extent they can and do provide ongoing support and discuss with their patients the everyday experience of living with incontinence. This article focuses on what it means to live with faecal incontinence and, based on the findings from a small study, discusses the range of experience women with this chronic condition have.
