PUNS is very excited to unveil it's first patient publication “You Taking Care of You: A Girl’s Guide to Using a Catheter” and “You Taking Care of You: A Boy’s Guide to Using a Catheter”, developed by Shelly J. King, MSN, RN, CPNP.
The booklets are targeted towards 6-10 year old children teaching them the basic steps and the importance of proper catheterization.
Excerpt from the Note to Parents:
“It’s natural to question whether your child is ready to take on self-catherization. The good news is, if your child can hold a pencil and write her name, she has the dexterity required to take this step. She can do it. And so can you.”
The booklet is currently available in both Spanish and English version.
Please click here to request copies of the booklet to distribute in your practice. Please provide your name, address, and how many copies of each version you are requesting.
PUNS gratefully acknowledges Hollister, Inc.'s support of the development of the booklet.
The booklet will also be available as a mobile app in 2016. Watch your email for details.
