Program Description:

Many women struggle with urinary complaints. The broad umbrella of voiding dysfunction includes overactive bladder, urinary retention and urinary incontinence. Primary care gynecology providers are experts in female anatomy, but they often lack skill in urologic care.. This presentation will provide the primary care women’s health clinician with strategies to assess pelvic floor health, urinary function, and other factors that contribute to voiding dysfunction. Evidence-based treatment modalities, including lifestyle modifications and pharmacologic interventions, will be presented.

Educational Objectives:

At the conclusion of this activity, the learner will be able to:

  • Obtain a thorough gynecological history including sensitive questions related to voiding dysfunction
  • Differentiate between stress, urgency, and mixed incontinence and urinary retention
  • Understand non pharmacologic and pharmacologic therapy options for voiding dysfunction
