This workshop will provide a comprehensive review of urologic catheters (indwelling and intermittent) in individuals with neurogenic lower urinary tract dysfunction (NLUTD). Reviews of current catheter technology and evidence-based guidelines with translation to recommended clinical practice will be presented. Identification of world-wide problems with catheter-related complications including urethral trauma and catheter-associated UTIs will be detailed. Workshop educational value for the proposed ICS audience of nurses, physicians, researchers is broad as it addresses current gaps in clinician knowledge, new or recent changes in guidelines that can inform clinical practice and future research.

Learning Objectives

  • To differentiate the various catheterization techniques, indications, and complications.
  • To understand the differences in material and design of catheters used for indwelling or intermittent use.
  • To present Canadian and USA guidance on single and multi-use (re-use) catheters used intermittently. To review current research (e.g. IC registry, hydrophilic coating) on the use of urinary catheters in the NLUTD population.
