Overview: In this discussion-based Medical Insiders webcast, expert faculty explore available diagnostic algorithms, practice guidelines, and management options to address overactive bladder (OAB) symptoms and improve quality of life for patients with this very treatable condition. Faculty also discuss approaches for symptom assessment and explain how to determine when specialist referral may be warranted.

Learning Objectives
Upon completion, participants should be able to:

  • Incorporate a guideline-based approach for the evaluation of lower urinary tract symptoms
  • Describe strategies to individualize evidence-based treatment plans for OAB in collaboration with patients

Target Audience
This activity is intended for primary care physicians.
 
Statement of Need
In many cases, overactive bladder (OAB) can be safely and effectively treated in primary care practice. Unfortunately, despite an estimated prevalence of almost 30% in the United States, OAB remains vastly underrecognized and untreated. Indeed, patients may neglect to discuss symptoms with their healthcare providers due to embarrassment or the misconception that their bladder issues are a normal part of aging, and primary care physicians may fail to ask patients with established risk factors about lower urinary tract symptoms, perhaps for the same reasons. Therefore, primary care clinicians would benefit from education on the diagnostic evaluation of patients with lower urinary tract symptoms and treatment strategies for patients with OAB who can be safely managed in this setting.
