Conservative Care of Urinary Incontinence in Women
Urinary incontinence is a common and significant issue that many women may experience at various stages throughout their lives. Proper determination of etiology is required to offer the most effective management options for urinary incontinence. The 2020 SOGC Clinical Practice Guideline on the Conservative Care of Urinary Incontinence Among Women, summarizes recommendations for assessment and management options for stress, urge and mixed related urinary incontinence. The guideline outlines key components that should be included in a history exam, physical exam, lab analysis, urodynamic evaluation and cystoscopy. Additionally, evidence for conservative management options including lifestyle modifications, pelvic floor muscle training, behavioural management and mechanical devices are reviewed. All health care providers that may be working with women should review the guideline to assure assessments are completed thoroughly and evidence-based management options are offered. After reviewing the guideline, SOGC members may complete the Guideline Resource Kit, which includes an online quiz that will contribute towards continuing medical education credits. Members can also download other resources that will help in understanding the guideline as a whole.
