UTI and incontinence update
Fri, 16 July 2021
19:00 – 20:00 BST
Overview: Urinary incontinence or involuntary leakage of urine is a common problem among women. Sadly, it is not a priority area in any healthcare system, because it is not cancer and does not kill. However, the impact on the sufferers is enormous. It is embarrassing for them, affects their morale, their family life, their personal relationships. It ruins their quality of life. And even quantity of life. Half asleep elderly women needing to rush to the toilet at night often have trips and falls leading to complications like hip fracture, hospitalisation, hospital-acquired infections and death! Occasionally, it can even be a manifestation of something more seriously wrong with the urinary bladder. Contrary to what many women may believe, it is not an inevitable part of ageing and can be effectively managed with treatment starting in the primary care and escalated to secondary care as and when required. We present a refresher on this important issue.
