Nursing Solutions: Recognizing the Impact of Genitourinary Symptoms in PD

Originally presented on May 23, 2017

Urinary tract symptoms are common in Parkinson’s.  These symptoms may include incontinence, urgency, frequency, nocturia, post voiding dribbling, a weakened urinary stream and a sense of incomplete emptying of the bladder.  Symptoms may cause a host of cognitive, affective and behavioral changes.  This webinar will discuss genitourinary symptoms in Parkinson’s and their impact on quality of life. It will also present ways in which nurses -- via patient education, care and referral -- can help people with Parkinson's who are experiencing such symptoms.
