Overview

According to the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, about 6,000 women in the United States enter menopause every day. Many menopause symptoms can become debilitating, affecting a woman’s quality of life, including her social life, psychological health, sense of well-being, and ability to function.

About 16% to 18% of postmenopausal women develop UI. Many are too embarrassed to discuss the condition with their healthcare providers and some believe it’s a normal part of aging that they have to live with. The result can be isolation and depression when they limit their activities and social interactions because of UI.

Nurses are key to ensuring patients receive the care they need. The goal of this article is to provide nurses with information so they can better care for postmenopausal women who experience UI.
