Exploring the effectiveness of health and social care support services

Read this article to explore the effectiveness of health and social care support services.

Do you think that people who need support to maintain continence are being let down by the services that are there to support them?

Your task

Take a look at the level and type/s of continence support available to people in your local area and share your views about this question with fellow learners.
Have a look at other learners’ comments. If you can relate to a comment someone else has made, why not ‘Like’ it or leave a reply. We encourage you to engage with other course participants, but especially in this case to be mindful that everyone is entitled to their opinion and you will each have your own unique experiences to draw on.
To aid your argument, use positive and negative examples from your own practice, where possible, taking care not to identify specific places and people.
