Multidisciplinary Care of Urinary Incontinence

A Handbook for Health Professionals

  • The use of case studies of common conditions illustrates multidisciplinary concepts in care and allows readers to identify with the type of patients they see and the role of the various disciplines in caring for the patient during the case

  • Chapters, rather than being ‘topic oriented’, are organized based on the common types of patients presented to the health care professional. This means there is input by different disciplines at various steps of the case (i.e. nursing, physiotherapy, medical, surgical, geriatric and rehab etc.) rather than each discipline writing a separate chapter. In this way readers can see the specific role/ input of the various health professionals in caring for the patient during different stages of the patient’s management

  • The inclusion of simple practice points and tips in table form at strategic steps assists the reader to provide hands-on management of the patient with these ‘tricks of the trade’

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Fifteen contributors from disciplines involved in continence care have written this concise, but comprehensive, handbook intended as a resource for all health care professionals looking after patients with urinary incontinence. … This handbook does very well in what it sets out to achieve: a well-presented, clear resource of current assessment and management of urinary incontinence. Its key feature is the direct clinical relevance of its layout of the topic chapters which are informative, easy to read and extremely well illustrated.” (Hugh Greenland, Australian and New Zealand Continence Journal, Vol. 19 (3), 2013)
