Thank you for inspiring ACCT talks @ICS 2017

At ICS 2017 we hosted 15 mins expert discussions around bladder and bowel care. We truly had some inspiring days in our ‘speaker’s corner’ in the Wellspect booth!

ACCT (Advancing Continence Care Together) is Wellspect’s forum where science, industry and healthcare professionals together can share, interact and discuss how to best advance continence care from a patient perspective.
