School Nurse Interventions in Managing Functional Urinary Incontinence in School-Age Children
Rivers, Charisse L.
Journal of School Nursing, v26 n2 p115-120 2010
Uncomplicated urinary incontinence (UI) in school-age children is a prevalent yet underrecognized problem that has remained in the shadow of other concerns commonly perceived as more prominent or urgent. There is good evidence that functional UI in children can be treated and managed effectively. When there is no structural or neurologic abnormality and the underlying cause of the UI is related to either the storage or voiding phase of the bladder cycle then it is considered functional. School nurses are in an ideal position to identify, manage, and help children with functional UI cope effectively while maintaining healthy psychosocial well-being and educational success.
