As part of the online consultation team’s focus on Urology Awareness Month, this post is about incontinence. Incontinence is one of the most common urologic complaints affecting both men and women. Encouraging patients to talk about incontinence could remove some of the embarrassment associated with leaky bladders.
Letting your patients know that they can talk to you about incontinence and get treatment, because it isn’t just ‘one of those things’ can dramatically improve someone’s quality of living.
Doing it through eConsult can give a patient a feeling of control over the situation and how they choose to express themselves. We have included some template text messages and social media content for you to send to your patients or upload to your surgery Facebook or NextDoor accounts.
