PD Library thumbnail

Urinary tract symptoms are common in Parkinson's disease. These symptoms may include incontinence, urgency, frequency, nocturia, post voiding dribbling, a weakened urinary stream and a sense of incomplete emptying of the bladder. Symptoms may cause a host of cognitive, affective and behavioral changes. This webinar will discuss genitourinary PD symptoms and their impact on quality of life. It will also present ways in which nurses — via patient education, care and referral — can help people with Parkinson's who are experiencing such symptoms.

Moderated by: Gwyn M. Vernon, M.S.N., R.N., C.R.N.P., Co-Founder and National Director of The Edmond J. Safra Visiting Nurse Faculty (EJS-VNF) Program at the Parkinson's Foundation

Led by: Helene Moriarty, Ph.D., R.N., F.A.A.N., Professor, Villanova University College of Nursing and Joanne Robinson, Ph.D., R.N., F.A.A.N., Dean and Professor, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.

  • Recognize common genitourinary symptoms experienced by people with PD.
  • Discuss the impact of these symptoms on quality of life. 
  • Understand ways nurses can help people with PD who are experiencing genitourinary symptoms, including via in-depth interviews, patient and family education and referral.
