Abstract

The insertion of an indwelling urethral catheter is a considered, invasive intervention which places the patient in a position of increased vulnerability. It requires the nurse to have the knowledge, skills and understanding to prepare and perform the procedure whilst supporting the patient. Such a procedure may evoke a range of emotions and responses in a person with an intellectual disability (ID). It is important that nurses address the needs of the individual tailoring the care to their needs in a sensitive and respectful manner.
