Accreditation Check:

Bladder control problems, including urinary incontinence, negatively impact quality of life and rehabilitation outcomes. Incomplete emptying, which may be caused by neurogenic bladder, is associated with incontinence and infections. Physical and occupational therapists can provide interventions for patients with incomplete bladder emptying to improve symptoms and reduce associated negative sequelae. This course will describe causes of incomplete bladder emptying, and will demonstrate and explain evaluation and intervention strategies for this bladder control problem in elders.
