Whāraurau invites you to attend our online Lunchtime Learning event: 

Continence issues in Tamariki
 Lisa Smith from Continence NZ

This session will cover continence issues for Tamariki, tips for healthy bowel and bladders habits and the importance of assessment and referring on for interventions.

Continence NZ was established to provide a service to people with continence problems, caregivers, health professionals and the general public by providing information and education on continence topics.

Continence NZ has developed a service in an area that has largely been ignored in the past by health professionals and health providers. The sufferers have been too embarrassed or unable to access appropriate help and in a majority of cases, suffered in silence.

Once published, the video of this presentation will be available below in the Resources tab.


Whāraurau is proud to be able to offer a series of monthly online trainings. Throughout the latest lockdown we have been providing weekly Lunchtime Learning events to provide an opportunity for ongoing education and connection for the ICAMH, AOD, NGO and PHO sectors.

We will return to monthly Lunchtime Learnings sessions in October.

Future topics for 2021 include:

  • Impact and approaches to maternal addiction, Chandni Prakash - Waitemata DHB
    Thursday 14 October 2021
  • Talking to young people about drugs: tips, guides and resources, Phil Glaser - Drug Foundation 
    Thursday 11 November
