7th Annual State Conference 2018


We thank all those who attended our 7th Annual State Conference The Scope and Spectrum of Incontinence May 17th – 18th, 2018 at RACV Goldfields.

We trust that our extensive and innovative program catered to the diverse audience in attendance encouraging them to strengthen and transform their local continence efforts.


The objectives of this conference were to:


  • Engage a diverse local continence related workforce to strengthen and transform their local continence efforts
  • Examine the evidence and translate into practice
  • Share, analyse and disseminate local and national continence lessons with a particular view on person centred continence care
  • Serve as a collaborative forum for the exchange of knowledge and capacity building of the specialist and non-specialist workforce on continence assessment and management.

Thank you once again to those that attended!
