ACCT Webinar: Transanal irrigation (TAI) – a solution for constipation and fecal incontinence
During this one hour webinar, Professors Jan Tack and Anton Emmanuel together with Clinical Nurse Lead Bev Collins discuss how Transanal Irrigation (TAI) could be a possible option for more patients and how to improve adherence to the therapy.
Professor Jan Tack talks about the pathway of care for patients with severe bowel dysfunction or with symptoms of constipation and fecal incontinence.
Professor Anton Emmanuel outlines the history of TAI, which was used already by the Egyptian pharaohs some 5 000 years ago.
Finally, nurse Bev Collins talks about the importance of training, but also of establishing a good contact with the patient from the start.
This program would be of particular interest to anyone who cares for, or possibly teaches TAI.
