8th Annual State Conference 2019

Thank you to those that attended!

Our 8th Annual Victorian State Conference was held over two days from

Thursday May 30th & Friday May 31st 2019 RACV Torquay Resort 11 hours CPD/PD

The Theme this year was Proactive Continence Care; Good Nights and Better Days.

The diverse program appealed to Continence & Health professionals from all walks including; continence nurse consultants, pelvic floor physiotherapists, general practitioners, specialist physicians, allied health professionals, nurses in the specialty fields of community, rehabilitation and aged care nursing, midwives, maternal and child health nurses, undergraduate students in health sciences and other health professionals with interest in bladder and bowel health.

The objectives were to:

1)      Engage a diverse range of health professionals to strengthen and transform their local continence efforts

2)      Examine new evidence and how it translates into practice

3)      Provide current and potential members of the Continence Foundation of Australia with affordable state based education and an opportunity to network with their peers
