Urinary incontinence is not a normal component of aging, and failure to appreciate the importance of screening and treating transient incontinence puts older adults at risk for isolation, depression and institutionalization. Urinary incontinence of less than six months duration can be addressed and resolved in the majority of cases if screening and management of the contributing factors takes place. This video explains the purpose of a bladder diary, and also demonstrates how to teach patients to capture critical information in the diary. Additionally, the patient in this program is examined for possible physiologic factors contributing to her new onset incontinence. Observe team discussion and planning, as well as patient education, around the treatment and prevention of incontinence.This program is organized in two chapters.
