Improving Outcomes in OAB: New and Emerging Strategies to Reduce Symptom Burden and Treatment Adverse Effects (Archived CME/CE Webcast)

This educational activity has expired. You will not be able to claim credit for this activity.

Activity Description and Purpose

Overactive bladder (OAB) is a common condition that can significantly impair quality of life and carries a substantial personal and societal economic burden. Available evidence indicates that OAB is undertreated and inappropriately treated through the use of antimuscarinic medications in patients with dementia. Current and emerging β3-adrenoceptor agonist therapies may have a better risk:benefit profile. The desired results of this activity are for urologists and other clinicians to improve their diagnosis and treatment of OAB.

Target Audience

This educational activity is intended for urologists, urogynecologists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, and other clinicians caring for patients with overactive bladder.

Learning Objectives

After completing this activity, participants will be better able to:

  • Apply efficacy and tolerability clinical data to develop long-term treatment plans for patients with overactive bladder
  • Incorporate medication reviews into patient encounters
  • Compare the data on central nervous system effects of antimuscarinic overactive bladder medications with those of β3-adrenoceptor agonists
  • Describe the pharmacologic, efficacy, safety, and tolerability profiles of new and emerging treatments for overactive bladder
