Résumé :

This guideline has relevance in all areas of clinical practice, including acute care, community care and long-term care. However, the recommendations should be implemented cautiously with clients who drink less than 1.5 litres of fluid a day, or for those with a neurogenic bowel disorder (lower motor neuron disease). It does not apply to those clients with medical conditions for whom a restricted fluid intake is prescribed, nor for those who receive enteral feedings, nor for those who are palliative or receiving narcotic analgesics. It is important to address the need for treatment of acute constipation and fecal impaction before implementing this guideline.
The guideline focuses its recommendations on four areas: (1) Practice Recommendations to support the nurse and nursing practice; (2) Educational Recommendations to support the competencies required for nursing practice; (3) Organization and Policy Recommendations directed at practice settings and the environment to facilitate nursing practice; and (4) Evaluation and monitoring indicators.
