Description
 

Management of Constipation


The purpose of this evidence-based guideline is to reduce the frequency and severity of constipation among older adults. The guideline may be used as a reference guide to assist clinicians who care for older adults. The goal is to maintain bowel frequency within normal limits for each individual. This will vary with the individual's perception. Regular bowel movements are commonly defined in the literature as at least two-three times per week with straining at stool less than 25 % of the time. This guideline is applicable to older adults who are hospitalized, residing in long-term care or skilled care facilities, or living in the community. This guideline is not intended for the populations of enterally fed, paraplegic, or quadriplegic individuals. Written 1996; Reviewed 2001; Revised 2009.
