FREE WEBINAR: Stress Urinary Incontinence Dr Scott Farrell
Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) is a condition that results in the involuntary release of urine and affects more than 3.3 million Canadians, nearly 10% of the entire population, including both men and women, but seldom do we hear about Stress Urinary Incontinence.
SUI is not a disease, it is a symptom of a physiological change in the body and should be discussed with a healthcare practitioner.
The number of Canadians experiencing incontinence will rise dramatically over the coming years due to the aging "boomer" population.
Physiotherapists and Physiotherapist's Assistants are uniquely positioned within the healthcare continuum of care to help identify, manage, and support patients with conservative management approaches related to incontinence.
Upon completion of this webinar, registrants will be able to:
1) Understand the normal bladder continence mechanism
2) Understand the pathophysiology of stress incontinence
3) Be able to identify patients who can benefit from conservative treatment
4) Be able to counsel patients on the relative efficacy of treatment options with particular emphasis on conservative management
5) Be able to counsel patients on the use of pessaries for SUI
