Course Details

Overview

Common in both men and women, lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) include urinary incontinence (UI), daytime and nocturnal frequency with or without urgency, difficulty urinating or emptying the bladder, and pain associated with bladder filling and emptying.

Unfortunately, the social stigma and misperceptions surrounding LUTS prevent many people from seeking treatment, creating a significant but under-acknowledged public health burden.

This article reviews LUTS as a public health problem and discusses how nurses can work within the healthcare system and with community health educators to improve care and outcomes.

Key Learning Outcomes

  • Define the problem of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS).
