Urinary Incontinence CPG & Urinary Incontinence Implementation Manual

This package includes the Urinary Incontinence Clinical Practice Guideline and Urinary Incontinence Implementation Manual.

Urinary Incontinence is one of the most common conditions among residents of post-acute and long-term care (PALTC) facilities, affecting about 55% of all such residents. The prevalence of urinary incontinence increases with age. Women are affected more than men. Although urinary incontinence is increasingly prevalent with age, it is not a normal part of aging.

Urinary incontinence can adversely affect patients’ dignity and can contribute to depression, embarrassment, and social isolation. The annual cost of managing urinary incontinence in PALTC care facilities is estimated at $5.5 billion.

The implementation manual delineates a systematic, well-planned implementation process for implementing the AMDA Clinical Practice Guideline (CPG) for Urinary Incontinence (UI). It is designed to assist physicians, nurses and advanced practitioners to support evidence-based clinical and management decision-making. It is intended to accompany the UI CPG developed by AMDA in order to facilitate its implementation and sustained use in the health care setting.
