Clean Intermittent Catheterisation, CIC for short, is a simple procedure for emptying the bladder.
It might seem scary. Or difficult. Or maybe just uncomfortable. But like anything else, practice makes perfect. Millions of people around the world perform CIC four to six times a day, every day – and they will tell you it can solve a lot of problems, and make life a whole lot easier.
On this website, you will find video testimonials from experienced users, instructions, tips and other materials. You will also find the enCATHopedia, a series of small, information leaflets regarding anything where catheterisation can be part of the treatment or the best solution in a person's life. These leaflets, downloadable below, are quick guides to how the bladder/urinary tract/urethra is affected by different diagnoses and about catheterisation.
Users: Keep an eye open for the enCATHopedia in the waiting room. Maybe you can learn something new about your condition and how it affects your bladder or bowel? If you don´t find your diagnosis, contact us and we might add to the collection. If you are unsure of anything at all, ask your doctor or nurse.
Healthcare professionals: If you are interested in placing a stand in your waiting room, contact your local Wellspect HealthCare office.
