In the long anticipated Roundtable discussion Sustainable Continence Care organised by the WFIPP, the stigma attached to incontinence was addressed and solutions as to how do we minimise the waste produced by absorbents. Other topics discussed in this session:
- E-health as support in sustainable continence care,
- Urologist having a crucial role to play in developing sustainable continence care; and
- The answer to how communities and society can best support self-care/self-management for patients and people with incontinence.
Prof. Philip Cornford (GB), chaired the Roundtable Fatigue in Prostate Cancer patients, in which was addressed how fatigue impact the lives of PCa patients, which goes beyond the “feeling tired” that healthy people feel: mental, physical and emotional fatigue, such as brain fog, depression, change in physical performance, falls and the need to change life.
The key question that every health professionals must ask the patients and really listen to are; “What does fatigue mean to you? What’s important to you? What have you tried? How was that?”
