Urinary tract symptoms are common in Parkinson's disease. 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 PD symptoms 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.
