This book provides a practical, evidence-based overview of the supportive care of patients with urological failure, covering issues such as quality of life measurements, the role of the multidisciplinary team, and psychological and social support for patients, families and carers. The book focuses on chronic symptoms such as chronic prostatitis. It begins by looking at quality of life measurements, self-help strategies, the role of the interdisciplinary team, and psychological and social support. It then moves on to clinical chapters which cover issues such as patients who present with hematuria, urinary retention, urinary incontinence, neurological disease affecting the urinary tract, chronic prostatitis, and infertility; ending with a chapter on supportive care for the urology patient and family in the future. The book places a special emphasis on symptomatic interventions, particularly in the setting where the course of the illness cannot be modified.

Reviews for Supportive Care for the Urology Patient

The authors aim the information at all members of the healthcare team involved in the care of the chronic urologic patient. They have presented this material in a manner accessible and interpretable by all members of the urologic team. This is an excellent addition to the growing armamentarium available to the healthcare provider when dealing with chronic urologic disease. Unique in its presentation and focus, this book will become a valuable resource in the management of the patient with chronic and terminal urologic illness. Doody's Journal
