Overactive Bladder Learning Center

What's Inside

The Overactive Bladder Learning Center is designed to provide clinicians throughout the world with the education and resources they require to more effectively treat individuals with OAB. Led by an international panel of clinical experts, the Learning Center incorporates CME/CE/CPD-certified activities to improve the ability of leaners to initiate conversations about topics related to urinary health; make a definitive and timely diagnosis of OAB; and provide effective, individualized treatment for patients with OAB while minimizing adverse events and improving therapeutic adherence.

Also featured on the Learning Center are a series of non-accredited tools and resources to improve OAB treatment, as well as patient-centered tools for diagnosis and additional education.

OAB: Adopting a Patient-Centered Approach to Improve Outcomes and Quality of Life

Four international experts discuss optimal approaches to identify and treat OAB, considering practice variations in the US, Europe, and Asia. The conversation includes a review of available and investigational pharmacotherapies for OAB, practical methods for assessing symptoms, how to discuss urinary health with patients, and implementing behavioral interventions.

Case 1: A Behavioral Modification Strategy for Newly Diagnosed OAB

The American Urological Association and the European Association of Urology recommend a number of non-invasive options to help reduce OAB symptoms, including bladder training and behavioral training. This case covers a breadth of recommended lifestyle changes and behavioral techniques that can be effective in patients with modest new-onset OAB.

Case 2: Comprehensive Approaches to OAB in the Elderly with Comorbidities

A combination of therapeutic modalities—from behavioral modifications to pharmacologic interventions—is often needed for older patients with OAB. This case report describes in detail treatment selection and the adjustments that clinicians often must consider when managing older patients with OAB who present with multiple comorbidities.
