Case-by-case: UTIs and enuresis
Using five different case presentations, this module will update you on:
- Symptoms that help distinguish upper from lower UTIs
- How to ensure that an appropriate urine specimen is obtained
- How to distinguish between OAB and a bladder burster
- Treating children with nocturnal enuresis
Within the module you will be presented with five cases, followed by an open-ended question, which will ask you to write down how you would approach the case at a given point. You will then be presented with advice from the author, allowing you to compare your approach to that of a specialist in the field.
There is no post-module assessment. Instead, you will be invited to reflect on the cases and your current practice.
