The Role of Home Health Physical Therapy in Managing Urinary Incontinence

Course: #3145Level: Introductory 2 Hours 1142 Reviews
Recorded Webinar

Incontinence is often times ignored, not addressed, or considered ‘normal’. Physical Therapists are well positioned to identify, refer, and treat urinary incontinence. This introductory course will cover what incontinence is, what physical therapy professionals can do, not just in home health, but in any setting to help cure incontinence, and make appropriate referrals for people who present with urinary issues. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Please note the Home Health Therapy Toolkit for Treatment of Urinary Incontinence is available for download FREE on the Home Health Section website under resources and then e-documents.
