Promoting Urinary Continence
in Older People Proactive primary care

GPs and practice nurses are important primary care partners for patients with urinary incontinence, who often require care co-ordination and long-term management. Urinary incontinence in an older person often arises because of more than one reason, with some factors being reversible while other factors are not, so a careful individualised basic evaluation can be rewarding. Multidisciplinary care through a continence clinic may also be valuable.
