Bowel Management After Spinal Cord Injury

Many people with a spinal cord injury experience some type of bowel dysfunction, which can have a wide variety of health and well-being consequences. However, an effective bowel program individualized to a person’s particular injury, type of bowel dysfunction, medical conditions, and lifestyle can provide stability and prevent many health issues. Kate Delaney, MD, Acting Assistant Professor in the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine at University of Washington will review the types of bowel dysfunction after SCI. She will then highlight the goals and the components of a good bowel program. Finally, she will discuss some options for difficult to manage bowels. Whether you are just learning about bowel care or have had a program for years, this will be a valuable review for anyone with SCI and their caregivers. Credits will be available for PT/OT: 1.5 contact hours.
