Professor Mandy Fader's photo

Mandy Fader received her nursing qualification from St. George’s Hospital, London in 1980. She began her career in continence with a research post at University College London (UCL) in 1982 and joined the clinical continence team in 1984. In 1995 she returned to research at UCL and worked on a programme of continence product evaluations, completing her PhD in 2001.

In 2004 she joined the University of Southampton’s Continence Technology and Skin Health group and leads a team of researchers focusing on research into continence products and devices, and the effects of incontinence on skin health.

Mandy is an ex-Trustee of the International Continence Society (ICS), is currently a member of the ICS nurses committee, a committee member for the International Consultation on Incontinence (Management with Products chapter), an editor for the Cochrane Incontinence group, and consulting editor for the US Wound Ostomy and Continence Nursing journal.
