Description

Continence promotion involves informing and educating the public and healthcare professionals that urinary incontinence is not an inevitable part of ageing, and can be treated or at least made more manageable. While awareness of urinary continence is improving slowly, the taboo around discussing incontinence remains. Women are at increased risk of developing urinary incontinence as they grow older because of physiological, functional and cognitive changes. Healthcare professionals can identify women with bladder symptoms by routinely asking trigger questions and can promote continence through education about lifestyle choices that aggravate or ameliorate urinary incontinence. This learning module discusses the main risk factors associated with urinary incontinence in older women and the ways in which healthcare professionals can help to identify those with symptoms of urinary incontinence.

Objectives

This module describes the main factors that increase the risk of urinary incontinence in older women – those aged over 65 years. Its aim is to educate healthcare professionals to identify opportunities for promoting urinary continence in older women and use them effectively.

On completion of this course you will gain an understanding of:
1. Describe the age-related physiological and functional changes that affect the lower urinary tract in older women.

2. Support and educate older women who present with risk factors associated with urinary incontinence.
