Overactive bladder (OAB) is a highly prevalent condition within primary care, and has a significant impact on a patient’s quality of life. Despite improvements in efficacy and lower rates of side effects with newer therapeutic agents, treatment discontinuation rates remain high over the long-term. Suboptimal treatment remains a major challenge for the successful management of OAB. This program will provide healthcare practitioners (HCPs) with an overview of OAB and its management by taking a closer look at the patient experience with OAB. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss individual patient concerns and management, and a significant focus of the program is the multidisciplinary approach to OAB management.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize patients with overactive bladder (OAB) and differentiate its symptoms from other urinary diagnoses.
  • Review latest treatment recommendations and differentiate between available therapeutic classes and agents.
  • Choose the appropriate treatment for patients based on individual needs/considerations and identify members of the patient care team to help optimize patient outcomes (e.g., urologists, geriatricians, pharmacists, caregivers, etc.).
