When Laughing is No Longer Funny: Managing Transient Urinary Incontinence in Hospitalized Elderly Women

Featuring: Grace Umejei, BSN, RN, CWOC, Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas

Transient Urinary Incontinence (TUI) affects 75% of females over 60-years-of-age. A study by a team at Texas Health Presbyterian set out to answer the question: Is behavioral modification therapy (including bladder diaries) more effective than passive TUI care in reducing TUI episodes in older adult female patients on a rehabilitation unit? Learn their important findings by sitting in on this NICHE Online Connect Webinar.

Population Health Management of the Heart Failure Patient

Featuring: Lynne Driscoll, RN, CCM, CPHM; Nina Laing, RN, BSN, CPHM, South County Hospital Healthcare Systems

SCHHS established a system-wide, community approach to heart failure care in order to sustain positive patient outcomes and reduce avoidable admissions/readmissions. The initiative included establishing a “Standard of Care” for each setting within the system, a heart failure intranet site, a callback program, and an education component, among other measures. The readmission rate dropped by 10% as a result of the effort. Take better care of your heart failure patients by taking part in this important presentation.
