Our Global Reach Webinar, Fecal Incontinence: a global perspective for a global problem, took place on Monday 24 April 2023.

Fecal Incontinence (FI) is a prevalent and debilitating condition that affects millions of people worldwide. Despite the significant impact of FI, its management has been challenging, and there is a lack of standardised guidelines and protocols for its diagnosis and treatment. This is particularly true for low- and mid- income countries, where FI is often underdiagnosed and undertreated due to limited resources and access to care.

In this webinar leading speakers and panelists present their cutting edge research and clinical experience on FI. Updated management for FI from a global perspective is explored, and the challenges and opportunities for improving patient outcomes worldwide discussed.

Programme highlights:

  • Leading researchers and speakers on FI
  • Updated Consensus guidelines on management of FI
  • Current evidence and future ESCP studies
  • Opportunity for worldwide collaboration
