World Continence Week – 17-23 June, 2024

We’re busting myths for World Continence Week

Was Intermittent Self Catheterisation (ISC) surprisingly doable for you? Have you heard any continence myths that you would like to debunk? 

Hollister is proud to be supporting World Continence Week and debunking continence and ISC myths.

We know ISC is often overlooked and that information on it is scarce. That’s why we are shedding a light on stories, thoughts, and experiences that aren’t usually discussed. We want to increase understanding of self-catheterisation and empower more people – now and in the future.
