We’re expanding our channels to include a dedicated Science Blog focused on bladder and bowel. Discover new research, stay current or simply expand your horizons in your chosen field.
The Wellspect Medical Affairs team (meet the team members below) gathers and summarizes the latest research related to continence care, all in one place, making it easy for the busy healthcare professional to keep up-to-date with the most recent developments in bladder and bowel research.
The Science Alerts are moving to the Science Blog
The monthly Science Alerts are summaries of the latest publications within the fields of bladder and bowel care. The findings are the results from systematic searches in the databases MEDLINE (via PubMed), EMBASE and Google Scholar. The selection is made by the Wellspect Medical Affairs team.
From now on, you will find the Science Alerts in the Science Blog. If you are a subscriber of the Wellspect Blog, you will also need to subscribe to the Science Blog to get these posts. Go to the Science Blog.
The Wellspect Blog will remain, focusing on bladder and bowel issues from the patient's perspective.
