This webinar looks at obstetric anal sphincter injury (OASIS) and the increased risk of anal incontinence and the impact that it has on young women's lives. It contains experiences from women who have sustained OASIS and anal incontinence and the important role of the health care provider in the acute and Long-term care for these women. It is hosted by Julie Tucker who is a Registered Nurse/Registered Midwife and is employed as the Clinical Practice Consultant for the Continence Nursing Service at the Women and Children’s Division at the Lyell McEwin Hospital. This service specialises in the care for women accessing the obstetric and gynaecology departments.
Julie is passionate about improving women's healthcare across the lifespan and tackling subjects which are often taboo. The completion of her second Masters degree in 2012 focused on the negative impact of anal incontinence on young women's lives following obstetric trauma. This formed the basis for current research which aims to identify anal incontinence in women of reproductive age. Julie is also undertaking a PhD with the School of Medicine at the University of Adelaide.
