Get the Facts: 2019 AUA/SUFU Diagnosis and Treatment of Non-Neurogenic OAB in Adults Guideline Update Webcast (2020)
Review and explore the recent changes to the 2019 AUA/SUFU Clinical Guideline on Diagnosis and Treatment of Non-Neurogenic OAB in Adults. Interactive, live interviews with subject matter experts will:
- Explore the who, what, and why of this specific guideline update and how these changes will affect clinical practice.
- Provide first hand, clinical accounts that illustrate the proper application of these guidelines in day-to-day practice.
- Demonstrate the importance of communicating proper patient expectations regarding treatment of OAB and maintaining a patient-centered focus.
This webcast is part of a series of activities to be released by the AUA as part of an exciting new educational initiative entitled, Get the Facts: 2019 AUA/SUFU Diagnosis and Treatment of Non-Neurogenic OAB in Adults Guideline Update. The goal of this initiative is to update urologists and the urologic care team on the changes to the 2019 clinical guideline on Diagnosis and Treatment of Non-Neurogenic OAB in adults which discusses patient presentation, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of patients based on the currently available data. The purpose of the guideline is to provide a clinical framework for the diagnosis and treatment of non-neurogenic OAB.
This initiative is comprised of a variety of unique activities, including (3) live webinars - one each offered in English, Spanish and Portuguese. Each activity will be recorded and available in webcast format on AUAUniversity and AUA's YouTube channel. Additionally, the English version will be released as an episode on AUA's podcast. Faculty will promote clinical resources including the newly amended AUA/SUFU guideline available in English and Spanish, as well as the Portuguese translation of the abbreviated OAB guideline summary. Learners will also be provided with links to access OAB patient materials developed by the Urology Care Foundation to help facilitate the dialogue with their patients.
This educational series is supported by an independent educational grant from:
- Advanced Practice Provider
- Non-Urologist (MD or DO)
At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Define the similarities and differences between the various pharmacotherapies for OAB.
- Review the principles of physiology and pharmacotherapy for currently available agents, including the antimuscarinics and beta-3 agonists and combination therapy.
- Realize the importance of setting proper patient expectations regarding treatment of OAB and potential need for sequential and even additive therapies.
- Analyze the clinical (and theoretical) advantages and limitations of currently available agents.
- Discuss potential future pharmacological pathways and therapies for OAB.
