Full Text: INCONTINENCE IS a major health issue affecting a large number of New Zealanders of all ages. Current services for the incontinent are fragmented, inequitable and insufficient for community needs. The New Zealand Continence Association believes now is the time for a concerted effort to address this serious and common problem and is in the process of developing new strategies for the management of incontinence.

An important part of the process is to identify current services. I am currently writing a report on the level of education taught in nursing, medical and physiotherapy schools, including subjects covered and the hours of teaching involved. I would be grateful for any assistance NZNO members can provide in terms of information or addresses of appropriate people to contact about this matter.
