Consumers and health professionals can now access information about incontinence in 20 languages with written, audio and video formats available. The 1-17 translated fact sheets are also now bilingual and accessible from these pages. You can also access these fact sheets via the resource section on The Continence Foundation of Australia’s website.
You can view the web pages and fact sheets by visiting www.continence.org.au/other-languages
The Continence Foundation of Australia also launched 3 new guidelines around working with interpreters:
- Guidelines for conducting presentations with an interpreter
- Guidelines for health professionals – working with interpreters in a continence assessment
- Guidelines for interpreters – what to expect in a continence assessment
These 3 guidelines are available to download from the “resource” section of the CFA website under the “professionals” topic.
