Welcome to the Asia Continence Nursing Congress 2021!
It is our pleasure to welcome you to the Inaugural Asia Continence Nursing Congress in Singapore. The theme for this year’s Congress is Driving Excellence in Continence Management. In Asia, we are facing a major issue with an ageing population. Incontinence is a significant problem among the aging population. This Congress will be a platform for healthcare professionals in Asia to share ideas tackling this pressing need.
In Singapore, Clinical Continence Services started in 1993. The role of the Continence Nurse Clinician was created to serve the incontinent elderly. Since then, Continence Nurse Clinicians have played an important role in managing continence issues locally. It is our objective to, not only, improve their quality of life, but to also bring them hope and dignity.
Going beyond Singapore, we need to work together across Asia to improve the continence management of our population. We seek to improve the quality of life of patients suffering from incontinence, in our respective countries. This Congress is the perfect platform for teaching and sharing among senior and junior staff.
For our inaugural Congress, our committee has planned and put together valuable presentations over the course of 2 days. Renowned speakers from across Asia will share their success stories in managing incontinence and promoting continence in the community.
Regrettably, due to the pandemic, we are unable to have you with us physically for the Inaugural Congress. However, technology has enabled us to host this Congress on a virtual platform so we can continue our sharing, even during this pandemic. So let us move forward and commence this two days virtual Congress!
So thank you and we hope to see you all online!
