008IC - New Approach to Group Learning Behavioral Modification Program for Managing Urinary Incontinence & Voiding Dysfunctions

Friday, May 18
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Location: MCC WEST, 2008

The course will (1) review the current methods of and basis for behavioral approaches (individualized training, biofeedback, etc) for the treatment of urinary incontinence (UI) and voiding dysfunction, then (2) proceed in introducing evidence based multi center data on Group Learning Behavioral Modification Program as an effective and safe approach for treating older women with urinary incontinence (TULIP, GLADIOLUS & MESA prevention studies). (3) The standardized bladder health teaching protocol that is easily taught with reproducible outcomes will be presented for implementation in their practices and their community. This bladder health protocol has been proven to be effective not only for treatment but for prevention of UI as well. (4) As part of the implementation, the newly developed questionnaire that could predict future incontinence among older continent women will be introduced. This questionnaire could serve as a screening tool specifically for those likely to be incontinent in the future and these group could benefit from this group learning protocol as a preventive measure.
