In February, our HPO Lisa Lawton visited the Hunter Prostate Cancer Support and Awareness Group and delivered a workshop on the topic of the prostate and healthy bladder and bowels.

The men in the group, as well as two healthcare workers present from the Prostate Cancer Foundation, were very keen to support the drive to increase the supply of disposal bins in men’s toilets. Read more about the topic in the Bridge story from South Australia, where a Continence Nurse Advisor member brought the mayor and local council on board.

The Sydney Women’s and Children’s Health Update for GPs was on held 23 February at the International Convention Centre at Darling Harbour. With over 1700 delegates, it was the place to be! Armed with many printed resources, the Continence Foundation exhibit was visited by delegates in between a tightly-packed schedule of presentations by researchers and experts in the field.
Early in March, the Muslim Women’s Welfare of Australia held their annual expo. The Continence Foundation had a presence and spoke to the attendees about our organisation, incontinence and where to access help. 


Continence Foundation of Australia has health promotion officers around the states/territories who are available to deliver presentations on the habits for maintaining healthy bladders and bowels. 

If your group seeks a tailored presentation on topics including pelvic floor exercises, specific chronic conditions, or the needs of specific age or cultural group, contact your state/territory’s Health Promotion Officer.
