Conservative Management

The aim of this workshop is to focus on our older adult population with urinary incontinence in a community dwelling setting. The importance of combining services to improve patient treatment outcomes is essential . Understanding the mechanisms of continence will help the audience appreciate a greater understanding of why UI is more commonly seen in our older adult population. A brief overview of the different types of urinary incontinence will be given as well as how to evaluate an older adult with urinary incontinence.

The conservative management options for urinary incontinence will be given from both a nursing and physiotherapy perspective.
