World Continence Week is an initiative of the International Continence Society and is coordinated in Australia by the Continence Foundation.
World Continence Week 2015 will be held June 22-28.
This year’s theme is Tell someone who cares, encouraging people affected by incontinence or those caring for someone with incontinence to seek help by phoning the National Continence Helpline (1800 33 00 66). The theme supports this year’s special project, Carers count: support for continence management, which will be launched during World Continence Week, along with a range of supporting resources.
To further promotional opportunities, the Foundation has this year developed a doubled-sided poster, with the alternate side capitalising on the Foundation’s TV advertising campaign, informing women that bladder leakage – no matter how light – is not normal and to seek help. The poster, which you can display in your workplace, or health or community centre, is one of many free resources that can be ordered from the Foundation to assist you with any promotional activities you are coordinating. Please ensure that you place your order well in advance of World Continence Week to avoid any delays with delivery.
As with previous events, the Continence Foundation will once again be holding a promotions competition for the best activity in support of World Continence Week. Prize details and an entry form are available here.
