This workshop will provide the practitioner and interpreter of urodynamics the guidelines for the performance of urodynamics (UDS) in a standardized format.

Although urinary catheters are part of every urology nurse’s practice, they are rarely the focus of training. This program will educate urologic nurses in understanding how urinary catheters function, how they interact with the body, as well as troubleshooting common urinary catheterization complications. Special emphasis will be placed on managing common (and not so common) complications due to long-term urinary catheterizations. The education and management of patients performing intermittent catheterizations will also be covered. Attendees will also participate in a hands on “cath lab” covering difficult urinary catheterizations, suprapubic catheter insertion and removal, and catheter dissection.
(Note: This workshop is limited to 20 participants.)
