Overview

This is an easy-to-read guide for general practitioners, nurses, and other health care professionals who work with geriatric patients and who need to know how to help promote continence in their patients. Incontinence can be a severe, distressing disability. However much progress has been made recently in the understanding of bladder function in people of all ages. As a result, an entire range of noninvasive approaches are available to doctors treating patients at home. As general practitioners and family physicians become more aware of the treatment strategies, they will be better able to assess and manage incontinent patients. The authors give practical advice and help the reader to identify those individuals who may require hospital investigation and treatment.
