Abstract: 

The UT Southwestern SAGE Urinary Incontinence module is a comprehensive core curriculum on UI in the elderly which can be incorporated into existing UME courses at both the pre-clinical and clinical levels. After completion of the program, medical students will have been trained in the basic evaluation and treatment of UI in the elderly. The program and learning platforms are created in sequential modules so that components can be utilized in different courses (anatomy, physiology, pharmacology) and for different levels of learners (clinical cases for 3rd and 4th year students). Modules also lend themselves to be utilized as clinical correlations in basic science courses.

Educational objectives: 

After completion of the UI modules, learners will be able to:

  • Describe the anatomy and physiology of the continence mechanism.
  • Discuss the age-related changes in the anatomy and physiology of the lower urinary tract (LUT) which increase the risk of UI.
  • Evaluate and diagnose the cause of a patient's urinary incontinence.
  • Create a treatment and management plan for a patient with urinary incontinence.
  • Describe how medications can cause UI and also understand complications from medications used to treat UI.
