Introducing BBc for people who have MS - a free course based in Bristol

Bladder and Bowel issues in MS are some of the most difficult symptoms to deal with so we have created a new Bladder and Bowel course (BBc) to offer information and advice on how to manage symptoms.

This course is free of charge and open to anyone who has MS.

The next course is due to take place in July at the MS Meeting Point at the Vassall Centre. Gill Avenue, Fishponds, Bristol, BS16 2QQ

Each course consists of two sessions with dates and times as follows:

July 2018:
Part 1: Weds 4th July 10:30 am – 12:30 pm.
Part 2: Weds 11th July 10:30 am – 12:30 pm.

Information regarding the content of each session of the course will be provided at the first meeting and you can attend as many of the sessions as you feel appropriate.

The course is run by Carole Copestake is our Continence Nurse Educator at MS Research. Carole has worked in Neurology since 1997, working as an MS research nurse on several clinical trials, she was appointed the first MS Specialist nurse in Bristol December 2000. Carole left her role as an MS Nurse April 2016 and now works with MS patients and those with other neurological conditions as a continence advisor.

In addition, we hope to hold a similar BBc course for healthcare professionals in order to teach them about bladder and bowel issues faced by people with MS and how to assist with their specific needs.
