AHPMA have developed new product testing guidelines for continence clinicians, and people who have responsibility for product selection and procurement for their Trust or service. 

Here is the link to the document as it appears on the AHPMA website :


This has been developed to enable a consistent national approach to testing and evaluating products, so that purchasing decisions and product selection can be better informed.  It also is designed to help people understand about absorbency and what other factors should be considered when evaluating products. 

This has been developed by AHPMA with the clinical input of Debbie Yarde, Sharon Eustice and June Rogers.
