Using Evidence to Improve Practice for Continence and Pelvic Floor Disorder Patients

Mar 14, 2014 1:15pm ‐ Mar 14, 2014 2:15pm

The purpose of this presentation is to help participants gain a better understanding of the role of evidence-based practice to improving patient outcomes, particularly for patients with continence and pelvic floor disorders. Various “Levels of Evidence” (LOE), including the seven levels identified by Polit and Beck (2012), as well as specific studies representing those LOE are discussed. The use of LOEs in Urologic Nursing is explained. By the end of the presentation, healthcare providers will be able to identify a problem or need, assess the evidence in published literature, develop an intervention, and evaluate the outcome in order to provide care that integrates sound research evidence into practice.

Talking to Parents...About Talking to Their Kids with GU Anomalies About Sexuality

Mar 14, 2014 3:45pm ‐ Mar 14, 2014 4:45pm

This presentation addresses the gap that exists in transitioning pediatric urology patients to adult urology patients; more specifically in recognizing that adolescents with genitourinary issues have the same need for sex education and information regarding sexuality topics as their peers. The issue of sexuality in these patients is often overlooked, in favor of managing their urologic conditions, and due to the fact that they are considered pediatric patients. A review of the pertinent fertility and sexual function issues inherent with common pediatric GU diagnoses is presented. The session concludes with discussion of established factors that are influential in relaying sexuality information to adolescents. Strategies for teaching parents the importance of addressing sexuality topics with their teens are presented.
