Overactive bladder (OAB) affects 33 million Americans and takes a significant toll on quality of life. Of the small percentage of people who seek care, less than half actually receive treatment. Primary care practitioners have an important role in assessing at-risk patients and managing OAB. In this CME/CE eCourse, two specialists discuss differential diagnosis and individualization of treatment, including the essential role of behavioral therapy and selection of pharmacotherapy. Simulated case video vignettes highlight critical patient-clinician interactions and long-term management.
Interactive, audio-enhanced slide lecture with video case study
