In its effort to continue to provide the most comprehensive, up-to-date information about incontinence, the National Association for Continence (NAFC) has updated the Resource Guide - Products and Services for Incontinence. The Resource Guide is a 1004page directory of all known incontinence products available commercially in North America.
The products are organized into 16 categories. Each is described and illustrated by a simple line drawing. Products are cross-referenced to their manufacturer, and there is an extensive listing of distributors and mail order companies. There is a section devoted to helping consumers understand the various types and causes of incontinence and a section to advise them how to prepare for a visit to a health professional.
The Resource Guide also includes a listing of organizations which provides other supportive services to readers and a listing of continence organizations throughout the world. Now in its seventh edition, the Resource Guide for the first time includes information about medications and surgical procedures used to treat incontinence.
