Diane Darrell, RN, C, MSN, M-S CNS, Fecal Incontinence, Missouri Nurses):"Fecal incontinence is the involuntary loss of gas, liquid, or solid stool. It is often called the silent affliction because people are too embarrassed to seek help and often keep it from their family as long as possible. There are close to 6.5 million people in the United States that are currently experiencing this problem. Whether fecal incontinence is severe or mild, it is embarrassing and humiliating. It produces a socially limiting lifestyle. Research to cure fecal incontinence has increased in recent years and people are finding success by surgical and medical therapy."

What is a Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS)?:"A Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) is a masters prepared, advanced practice nurse whose care focuses on a specific patient population (e.g medical, surgical, diabetic, cardiovascular, operating room, emergency room, critical care, or geriatric, neonatal, etc.) A CNS divides there time into five general areas clinical practice, teaching, research, consulting, and management. There assessment skills tend to be more focused than a Nurse Practitioners, since they focus on a particular area of specialty. But they make up for this by being able to provide more expertise than even an expert level staff nurse (who typically has their responsibilities divided into many different sub-areas.) CNSs are uniquely prepared to assume the role of case manager one who organizes and coordinates services and resources, and who works to control costs. This makes CNSs central players in the growth of managed care, and they serve to manage the complexities and interdependencies of different parts of health care practice."


National Association of Clinical Nurse Specialists:"The clinical nurse specialist (CNS) is a licensed registered nurse who has graduate preparation (a master's or a doctorate) in nursing as a CNS. The CNS is a clinical expert in theory-based and/or research-based nursing practice within a specialty area."
