A new guide to continence training and product solutions for care home professionals has been produced by Ontex Healthcare to support its growing iD-Direct incontinence care and personal hygiene programme.
The iD Care Home and Product Support Guide provides advice on the extensive iD Expert range and related solutions, as well as the training and support the company offers care home staff.
iD-Direct benefits from having one of the largest and best-qualified field support teams in the UK continence care market, constituting CRB-checked male and female nurses.
Training and education are overseen by the company’s Clinical Support team. Carers also benefit from having access to iD Expert eLearning: accredited by the Royal College of Nursing, this online tool has been developed to increase knowledge and understanding of incontinence and help keep to-to-date with best practice. There are currently 10 modules available, including one dedicated to Carers, with further modules in development.
The Guide also outlines the one-to-one and work based training, training films and literature devised to assist care homes in product understanding, selection and fitting, skincare, as well as ongoing patient management via full continence audits tailor-made to specific home needs provided by their iD-Direct Nurse Advisors.
A broad range of disposable product solutions for all types and levels of incontinence for men and women can be found in the new Care Home Product and Support Guide spanning the iD Expert, iD Pants, Slip and Belt ranges, in addition to the iD Care skincare offer.

A division of Ontex, one of Europe’s leading hygienic disposable manufacturers and distributors, iD-Direct direct markets the iD range of incontinence care and personal hygiene products direct to consumers and caring professionals.
One of the most popular incontinence care ranges used by the UK’s National Health Service (NHS), iD products are latex-free and dermatologically tested to minimise skin irritations and provide users and carers with an efficient range of solutions to continence management. iD incontinence products are home-delivered via a new e-commerce site tasked with assessing and advising on the most suitable continence solution for each visitor, as well as providing useful information and advice about incontinence. Suitable for all types and levels of incontinence and offered in a wide range of absorbencies and sizes, the iD range has been developed paying extra attention to the physical and emotional implications of all levels of incontinence, helping users remain confident to continue with their day-to-day activities with a feeling of protection and security. Surveys carried out in several European countries show that one in every 20 people in the total population is experiencing involuntary urine loss at some stage in his or her lives. In certain age groups, this figure increases to one in of every five persons.
More than 2.5 million people globally use iD products to reduce the impact of bladder weakness in their everyday lives. iD-Direct’s mission is to continue providing users with the most reliable, discreet and efficient continence management solutions enabling them to live their lives to the full. iD-Direct parent company Ontex deploys sustainable manufacturing technologies complemented by rigorous testing processes to ensure that its products are made to the highest standards.
