Aims and Objectives
The aim of this workshop is to bring ICS attendees up-to-date on bladder management in patients who have bladder dysfunction secondary to failure to empty urine. In these patients, treatment goals include strategies to maintain low detrusor storage pressure, preserve upper urinary tract function, prevent UTIs, maximize continence, and improve quality of life to the highest degree possible. Evidence-based international guidelines are available so clinicians remain current, informed and provide patient-centered care. This workshop will provide a review of evidence-based strategies for bladder management in the hospitalized older patient, in women post-anti-incontinence surgery, and those requiring long-term self-catheterization.
- Detail bladder management strategies, post-indwelling catheter removal, including voiding maneuvers to stimulate bladder emptying and bladder training as a component of a voiding trial
- Understand the perioperative use of catheters for anti-incontinence surgery in female patients and in older hospitalized patients with a discussion of complications (e.g. CAUTIs) and protocols for discontinuing catheters.
- Describe the various catheterization techniques, indications, complications and nursing management of a patient with neurogenic lower urinary tract dysfunction (NLUTD) and bladder management by intermittent self-catheterization.
