The National Association for Continence (NAFC), formerly Help for Incontinent People (HSP), has announced the launching of a World Wide Web site accessible through the Internet.
NAFCs mission is devoted primarily to serving the informational and educational needs of incontinent people and their caregivers. The site features introductory information about NAFC, answers to frequently asked questions and basic information regarding the causes, diagnosis, treatments and management alternatives for incontinence.
The NAFC Web site is designed to further expand public and professional awareness of the many services and educational materials provided by NAFC. These services include a Continence Referral Service, a Resource Guide of Products and Services for Incontinence, and the Quality Care newsletter.
The site also provides Internet link information to other helpful organizations, initially including the National Institute of Health, the American Foundation for Urologie Disease, the Agency for Health Care Policy and research and the National Kidney and Urologie Diseases Information Clearinghouse.
