Urinary Incontinence for Canada

Urinary Incontinence for Canada 

Urinary incontinence is a significant problem that affects a person’s physical and psychological health. Physical consequences include skin breakdown, falls, and infection. Psychological consequences include embarrassment, feelings of dependency, social isolation, and depression. Unfortunately, despite these consequences urinary incontinence is often underreported and underdiagnosed. Because of the factors associated with urinary incontinence, it is one of the most common reasons for admission to long term health care centres in Canada and the United States. According to the Public Health Agency of Canada, the incidence of incontinence rises dramatically, nine to ten times, for seniors residing in long term care centres compared to seniors residing at home in the community (The Canadian Continence Foundation, 2014). Because many of the individuals you care for will likely have some degree of urinary incontinence, it is important for you to understand how to provide the appropriate care for individuals with this condition. In this course, you will learn about the assessment and management of urinary incontinence.
