123130 - Promoting urinary continence in older people: proactive primary care

  • : Online

This free online learning module includes 15 clinical questions and immediate feedback is provided. There is also an original peer reviewed article written for GPs

Relevance to General Practice

- Urinary incontinence is often under-reported and underdiagnosed. 
- The prevalence rises with age and frailty, with around one in three women and one in five men over the age of 85 years experiencing severe bladder or bowel. 
- GPs are well placed to support older people with urinary incontinence. 
- This article will help GPs identify reversible factors contributing to urinary incontinence, recognise when specialist referral is required, individualise the management approach and co-ordinate long-term management. 

Learning outcomes
  • Identify patients with urinary incontinence who have not sought help
  • Assess the type of urinary incontinence and severity of symptoms
  • Manage any reversible aggravating factors in a patient with urinary incontinence
  • Refer patients for more help with urinary incontinence if it does not improve with first-line measures
