Around 1 in 12 children and young people live with a continence condition and a third of all children will experience constipation. Post COVID, there has also been a worrying rise in the numbers of children experiencing toilet anxiety and regression.
As the UK’s leading charity supporting all children and teenagers with a bladder or bowel problem, ERIC’s biennial conference is a must attend event for professionals already working in the field of childhood continence and those who are keen to develop their knowledge and service provision.
Our 2022 conference “Equality and Inclusion - Making sure no child is left out or left behind” will take place on 10 October at the Hilton Metropole, Birmingham.
This one-day event is aimed at professionals who are supporting children and teenagers to achieve good bowel and bladder health and those with a continence condition. The focus will be on improving services and access to services for children with a learning disability.
We are delighted to be returning to a physical event this year, but a virtual option is also available via live streaming from the main conference room.
Programme highlights include:
Keynote international speakers:
- Kelly Mahler, Occupational Therapist and award-winning author of resources about the eighth sensory system, Interoception
- Tryggve Nevéus, Associate Professor & Consultant in Paediatric Nephrology at Uppsala University and President of the International Children’s Continence Society discusses how taking an app-based approach to treating enuresis empowers the whole family.
Choice of interactive workshops providing practical strategies and including case studies.
