Urological Supplies Survey

Do you use intermittent or indwelling catheters and their accessories?

If yes, The Urology Coalition needs your input. The Coalition is working on improving reimbursement for these products, so your responses on this survey are very valuable to our work. Please share this survey with anyone you know who uses catheters. This survey link is also available on our Facebook Page.

Clinical Trial Looking for Participants

Managing Life with Incontinence

The Simon Foundation for Continence is dedicated to:

Incontinence affects millions of individuals worldwide.  Estimates suggest that over 33 million adults in the US are affected by urinary incontinence - and countless more by fecal incontinence or a combination of both types. 

The importance of reporting incontinence to a healthcare professional that is knowledgeable and interested in treating incontinence cannot be overstated.  A correct diagnosis for incontinence is extremely important for finding proper treatment and care and because incontinence may be an indicator of a more serious medical condition.  Incontinence should not be ignored nor viewed as a normal consequence of childbirth or aging.

Within this website you will find the help and knowledge that will motivate you to take the steps that will lead to the solution that is right for you, and for your particular incontinence.  However, information provided on this website is not medical advice and is not intended to substitute for the advice of your personal physician or healthcare provider.
