Incontinence is a condition that impacts millions of people who are confronted with occasions when they may question what to tell and who to tell it to. The presenter worked with experts under a collaboration with the Simon Foundation for Continence and researchers from Illinois Institute of Technology to develop a program to help people with incontinence with disclosure. This presentation provides evidenced-based information to help patients determine who has earned the right to hear their story, how to tell their story, and what to do with an unplanned disclosure.
