Nocturnal Enuresis (Bedwetting) Resource Kit — 2nd edition
The second edition of the Nocturnal Enuresis Resource Kit outlines the prevalence, pathophysiology, impact on quality of life, required assessment, initial management of nocturnal enuresis and cautionary red flags that warrant specialist referral.
Building on the previous edition, the four sections of the revised kit anticipate the problems that patients, their carers and healthcare practitioners may encounter at different stages of the diagnosis and treatment journey of nocturnal enuresis. The kit focuses on factors for consideration, including family history, sleep disordered breathing, obesity, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, bowel problems, developmental delay or physical and/or intellectual disability.
The kit’s parents and carers printable section contains practical information, designed to help this audience become functional members of the treatment team.
The kit also features the latest independent clinical evidence for the condition, including non-pharmacological approaches, such as pelvic floor training and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) therapy. The updated pharmacotherapy section also reflects current, evidence-based practice recommendations and algorithms.
The kit was co-authored by paediatrician and staff specialist at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, Associate Professor Patrina Caldwell, Sydney, and paediatric urologist, Department of Paediatric Urology and Surgery, John Hunter Children’s Hospital, Dr Aniruddh Deshpande, Newcastle.
