|Aims and Objectives|
Nurses have long championed access to health care for vulnerable populations. This workshop highlights strategies for promoting bladder and pelvic health in populations with continence vulnerability, including menopausal and post-partum women, marginalized communities, and adults with neurogenic bladder dysfunctions. Featured strategies include proactive conversations with menopausal women about pelvic health; imaginative outreach and continence education to marginalized groups; a standardized self-management protocol for long-term indwelling catheter users; and non-surgical treatment for post-partum women with stress urinary incontinence.
