Urinary incontinence is not a disease but rather a symptom that corresponds to various social and pathophysiological factors. Contrary to popular belief it's not an inevitable part of aging; it's often curable, and always manageable. Nurses caring for women need to understand the effects of incontinence in a woman's life and be prepared to suggest treatment options, make referrals as needed and provide information regarding evaluation and management options. Nurses can play a significant role in identifying women that are at risk for urinary incontinence, initiating screenings, and encouraging them to discuss their symptoms with their providers.
