ABSTRACT
The authors highlight the rising prevalence of incontinence and its implications on the continence nurses. Details pertaining to the formation and role of the International Continence Society (ICS) and its four subcommittees are presented. Also highlighted are the efforts related to bladder and bowel care nursing practice taken by ICS' practice and research subcommittees. The authors note that nurses follow evidence-based practice and research that readily challenges the current status quo.
