Continence Nurse Consultants (CNC) Inpatient Referrals

The Continence Service at Western Health is a specialised adult care service providing a multidisciplinary approach to address bladder and bowel dysfunction. Within this service, Continence Nurse Consultants (CNC) are focused on enhancing patient care for incontinence in the inpatient setting.

Starting 29th May 2024, all referrals to the Continence CNC must be made through the Electronic Medical Record (EMR). To facilitate planning and treatment decisions, it is essential to have initiated or completed the following tasks within the EMR:

  • Conducting a thorough continence assessment, including evaluation of genitourinary symptoms
  • Bowel chart
  • Assessing for any reversible causes contributing to the condition
