What is the scope and the aim of the conference?
In the context of today’s ageing societies and long term care, the 6th GFI will focus on improving the provisions and quality of services for people in need of continence care enabling independent and dignified living.
In particular, policy makers, experts, patients, carers, payers and other key stakeholders will come together to discuss shared objectives and next steps towards a new paradigm in continence care. The Conference will focus in particular on transforming the delivery of continence care services including key quality principles, measuring outcomes as a key driver of improving the care for people with incontinence, and new funding opportunities and solutions. The conference will aim to foster consensus on the way forward towards better continence care that can be implemented in different local health and social care environments.

In addition to key note presentations, panel debates, Q&A sessions and break-out sessions, the program will allow for productive and interactive debate throughout the conference, giving all participants the possibility to contribute to finding solutions.
