The Association of Continence Advice (ACA) is a multi-professional association opens to all health and allied care professionals and to those who have a concern for the promotion of continence and the better management of incontinence. The ACA started in 1980 with a questionnaire sent to every Health Authority and Board in the UK seeking to identify concerned professionals. At that time there were only 19 nurses in the UK identified as Continence Advisors; now most NHS Trusts and many private healthcare organizations have staff designated as continence specialists. The ACA are working towards the following key objectives: Represent the interests of our multi-professional membership by communicating effectively, for example, through its newsletter and website. Lead educational activity and support research development within the organization. Initiate projects and engage with internal or external groups, organizations or companies; and likewise, contribute to projects that aim to maximize evidence-based continence care. Influence UK wide clinical, professional and political developments in the field of continence care policy. Promote safe, high quality continence services that reflect UK wide policy developments.
