Event description

Description

Professor Booth is a practising nurse and Clinical Research Lead for NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde SPHERE Bladder and Bowel Service, and is chair of the Education and Research Committee of the UK Association for Continence Advice.

In her lecture, Professor Booth will explore developments in continence care and the effective management of urinary bladder symptoms in older adults and stroke survivors.

‘To pee or not to pee? Changing the paradigm of continence care’

Bladder problems are common in older adults, affecting more than half of older women and a third of older men. The symptoms can have a devastating effect on the person’s quality of life, severely affecting their family and social life. However, up to three-quarters of these people can be helped – or even cured – using simple approaches that support them to understand and self-manage their symptoms. New techniques are also being developed which can help sufferers to actively treat their symptoms.

Using evidence from past and current research, Professor Booth will explore older adults and stroke survivors’ experiences of bladder problems, and present new approaches to treatments that could change how they are perceived in the future.

This lecture will be of interest to those with an interest in ageing or stroke, and how to restore or maintain bladder control when suffering from a health condition which has impacted on continence.
