This "rehabilitation monograph" is a brief, simple presentation that discusses bladder training, bowel training, aids used in attending to toilet needs, examples of bladder routines, case studies, and organizational procedures used in expediting the training program. The monograph is of interest to nurses caring for patients with bladder and bowel incontinence and to the patients themselves.
