Clinical Tools for Continence Care Booklet

In 2017, ARN member Christine Cave, DNP NP-C CRRN EP-C, along with the Continence Care Task Force, released bowel and bladder management tools for the entire disciplinary team. The interactive booklet will help your team apply best practices and problem-solve continence needs for all of your patients. The Task Force, made up of key rehabilitation nurse leaders and specialists, developed Clinical Tools for Continence Care: An Evidence-Based Approach after a 10-year review on the topic of bowel and bladder management.

Each tool was designed to educate and train nurses to apply daily best practices to problem-solve continence needs. When used, you will institute a higher-quality care standard for nurses who implement strategies to establish continence. Included in the booklet are the following:

Financial Impact Tool—to support nurse managers and administrators seeking to establish a baseline estimate of costly unmanaged continence problems

Frequency Volume Chart—a 24-hour documentation tool, broken into 8-hour shifts and designed for the entire care team to use

Algorithm 1—General Assessment of Bladder

Algorithm 2—General Assessment of Bowel Function

Algorithm 3—Urinary Incontinence

Algorithm 4—Voiding Dysfunction

Algorithm 5—Constipation

Algorithm 6—Diarrhea and/or Fecal Incontinence
