Urinary Continence Promotion and Care

Year: 2016
Machado-Joseph Disease (MJD) is characterised by a constellation of symptoms, which extend from ataxia and pain through to eye movement disorders, sleep disturbance, and bowel and bladder dysfunction (MJDF, 2016). Coordination of muscles, including urinary system muscles, is a major function of the cerebellum (Knierim, 1997). This medical protocol outlines the symptoms of urinary continence and their associated prevalence, assessment and treatment.
