160110 - Nocturia and Overactive Bladder Symposium

  • : Online

Nocturia and overactive bladder symptoms are both common and burdensome conditions. Nocturia is commonly dismissed, but it has significant health and financial impact.  Nocturia is now understood as being more complex than a lower urinary tract dysfunction.  The multi-factorial nature of Nocturia involves renal, cardiac, respiratory and sleep disorder causes.    

The Royal Melbourne Hospital Continence Service warmly invites you to the Nocturia and Overactive Bladder Symposium. This symposium will present the multi-factorial causes, practical approaches and evidence-based treatments to assist you in managing your day-to-day patients.

Relevance to General Practice

Nocturia and overactive bladder symptoms are common yet extremely troubling conditions. Nocturia is commonly dismissed, but it has significant health and financial impact. Nocturia is a condition in which you wake up during the night because to pass urine. Overactive bladder involves either or both urinary frequency and urgency. Both these conditions may also have symptoms of incontinence in which the individual is unable to prevent leakage. 
Nocturia and overactive bladder are now understood as being more complex than an automatic diagnosis of lower urinary tract dysfunction. The multi-factorial nature of nocturia involves renal, cardiac, respiratory and sleep disorder causes. Therefore, it is imperative GP and other health professionals are well versed and informed on the potential risk and contributing factors associated with nocturia and over active bladder.
