260 - Advanced Evaluation and Management of Incontinence

‐ Mar 22, 2019 4:20pm

Credits: None available.

Urinary incontinence is a common condition seen in urology practice and presents as the primary complaint in new patients or as a post-surgical complaint in existing patients. Many are referred from primary care practitioners after first-line treatments have failed, and urology is viewed as the “last resort” in patients who are refractory to established therapies. The complexity of these patients can be a challenge to the most seasoned urology nurse. New and improved drug, surgical and behavioral interventions are now available. This lecture provides a pathway to advanced urinary incontinence treatments through case study presentations.
