Urodynamic testing provides extremely valuable and useful information for the care of urologic patients with voiding dysfunction. However, testing can be daunting to perform and interpret. This informative and dynamic session takes participants through the entire process beginning with the rationale for “why we do what we do,” how voiding dysfunction impacts the bladder through set-up, trouble shooting and interpretation. Games and case studies are utilized to “pull it all together.”
