Trial Without Catheter - TWOC

A patient with a catheter should be reviewed regularly and a TWOC planned after an assessment indicating that it can be removed. It's important that the patient is made aware of the what this involves and what to expect. Here is a link to the NBT TWOC Patient information sheet.
