Welcome to the online CME course: “Overactive Bladder and Anticholinergics in Children,” presented by the faculty of the Department of Urology at Boston Children’s Hospital, in collaboration with the BCH Department of Medical Education. In his talk, Dr. Stuart B. Bauer provides an overview of overactive bladder, reviews current research, and presents evidenced-based protocols for evaluation and treatment of overactive bladder.
The goal of this course is to review current best practices in the diagnosis and care of children with overactive bladder. Upon completion of this course, learners will be able to:
describe the indicators of overactive bladder in children
evaluate children for overactive bladder, using physical exams, histories, and lab studies
explain behavioral and medical treatment options for children with overactive bladder
recognize when overactive bladder can be safely managed in a general pediatric setting, and when subspecialty referral is appropriate
