Best practice management
Research has shown that appropriate education, for example, sharing of best practice for care home staff, can improve their knowledge and therefore the management of patients with constipation.1
However, there is still a considerable way to go to achieve consistent best practice across Europe and improve quality of life for older people at risk of constipation.
Please get in touch if you have an example of best practice management you would like to share and check back to this page for future updates.
