The Service

  • The betwetting and continence service at Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) provides expert nursing advice, support and management to the children and their families of Western Australia with bladder and/or bowel problems and/or nocturnal enuresis.
  • The service offers a self-management enuresis treatment program with the use of quality reliable alarm machines which are used in conjunction with treatment.
  • A nurse counsellor will advise support and introduce strategies through the program that will enable the best possible chance of a successful outcome. Treatment takes approximately six to eight weeks.
  • Expert nursing assessment, education, advice and management are offered to children with daytime bladder problems eg urinary frequency, urgency (“busting” to go to the toilet)  or daytime wetting or bowel problems eg constipation and faecal incontinence (bowel motions “poos” in the underwear).
