Urinary tract symptoms are common in Parkinson’s disease (PD), affecting 27 percent to 64 percent of people with PD1. 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 for those experiencing these embarrassing issues. This web seminar will discuss genitourinary symptoms in Parkinson’s disease, their impact on one’s quality of life, and prompt nurses to assist patients with education, care and referral.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Recognize the common genitourinary symptoms patients with Parkinson’s disease can experience;
  • Discuss the impact of these symptoms on one’s quality of life; and,
  • Understand how nurses can be of assistance to those with symptoms through in-depth patient interviews, patient and family education and referral.
