Urinary Symptom Management
Urinary symptoms are a common problem for people with neurogenic bladder. But, not all urinary symptoms are indicative of urinary tract infection (UTI), nor are UTI symptoms only symptoms that are related to your bladder. Should you self-manage at home or seek medical attention for treatment? Determining the best approach is a problem for both clinicians and people with neurogenic bladder. We address these questions in this podcast discussing the “Urinary Symptom Questionnaires for Neurogenic Bladder” developed by Dr. Groah and her team. We dive into what is seen clinically, ways to self-manage urinary symptoms and how the Urinary Symptom Questionnaire can be used by clinicians and patients in clinical decision making. If you are a clinician who treats people with neurogenic bladder or if you're a person with neurogenic bladder, and you often need to determine how to manage these bothersome urinary symptoms, then this podcast is for you.
