Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Internal Medicine Volume 60, Issue 43: Incontinence/Urinary Tract Infection.
The goals of this program are to improve the assessment of the patient with urinary incontinence (UI) and the management of urinary tract infections (UTIs). After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Evaluate and diagnose the patient who presents with UI and/or other lower urinary tract symptoms.
2. Use validated questionnaires and other tools (voiding diary and volume flow chart) to assess the severity and impact of symptoms.
3. Consider duloxetine, imipramine, and pseudoephedrine for the treatment of stress and mixed UI.
4. Perform a telephone assessment of a woman who calls with symptoms suggestive of a UTI.
5. Prescribe effective first-line antibiotic therapy for patients with uncomplicated UTIs.
The original programs were presented by Gopal Badlani, MD, Professor and Vice Chair, Department of Urology, Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, Winston-Salem, NC, and Michael T. Melia, MD, Assistant Professor of Medicine, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD.
