Bowel and bladder dysfunction should not stop you from living your life to the fullest. Spinal cord damage can affect the nerves in the spinal cord that control bladder and bowel function, leading to incontinence, with regular routines and management essential to prevent serious health complications.  

Spinal Cord Injuries Australia (SCIA) has proudly partnered with Coloplast to provide a range of initiatives to promote effective continence care and support services to improve health and wellbeing – especially during these challenging times. 

If you need support or assistance for National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) continence funding or with any other issues, then Coloplast’s team can be your guide to: 

  • Help you understand what is being recommended and how best to prepare if Covid-19 affects your plan 
  • Assist you to prepare for your NDIS planning or review meeting when it comes to your continence solutions 
  • Discuss your personal continence needs in a safe environment 
  • Support you with finding continence solutions that may better suit your lifestyle 

This partnership allows SCIA and Coloplast to provide the highest level of education, training and support to help reduce the burden that can follow when you need extra support with your bladder and bowel management.  

“SCIA has enjoyed a strong relationship with Coloplast for many years which has allowed us to provide the best outcome for our community. We share the same values and mission to strengthen support for those in the spinal cord injury community and are thrilled to share this additional support to help make lives easier for those with intimate healthcare needs”, says Dianne Lucas, CEO Spinal Cord Injuries Australia
