|Aims and Objectives|
Despite extensive research and use of evidence-based practice, urinary incontinence remains highly prevalent in older adults. Successful care requires a strong working knowledge of fundamental geriatric principles. This workshop examines key concepts and their influence on this geriatric syndrome. Non-genitourinary disorders and conditions affecting cognition, affect and mobility will be discussed, including practical assessment methods. The impact of environment and caregivers will be explored. Multiple short case vignettes will illustrate and highlight key learning concepts. Each faculty member will bring their unique cross-disciplinary perspective while keeping focus on patient outcomes. Active audience participation will be encouraged.
