  • May need proactive inquiry due to social stigmata etc, particularily in:
  • Frail elderly
  • Neurological disease
  • Cognitive impairment
  • Diarrhoea
  • Post partum especially after third or fourth degree tears
  • Urinary incontinence, pelvic, rectal or anal disease/surgery/radiotherapy, colonic resection

Much can be done with adequate knowledge and training in primary care which may be lacking as not an area of interest to many health professionals. The limitations and strengths of specialist services for specific indications need to be known.
