Continence Education for Front Line Care Providers
Essity, the maker of leading brand TENA®, and Conestoga College's Schlegel Centre for Advancing Seniors Care have developed virtual resources for unregulated care providers (UCPs, i.e. personal support workers and nursing aides) who support nursing home residents.
These online educational videos cover several critical topics within continence care. They promote evidence-based and person-centred continence care by guiding unregulated UCPs through best practices using case studies focused on residents' needs. In addition, Charlie and Beth’s full educational module is embedded within the TENA U platform as a full eLearning module focusing on ‘A Long Term Care Resident Living with Functional & Urinary Continence’.
The ultimate goal of these videos is to better prepare front-line staff to manage incontinence and deliver better care outcomes at the resident level.
