Educational Program on Sacral Neuromodulation

SUNA has developed a continuing nursing education (CNE) program on sacral nerve stimulation entitled Use of Sacral Neuromodulation in the Management of Voiding Dysfunction. This PowerPoint presentation addresses the prevalence and treatment of urinary control problems and the use of sacral neuromodulation as a treatment option for patients with urinary urgency-frequency, urinary urge incontinence, and/or urinary retention who fail or cannot tolerate conservative treatments. The CNE program offers 1.0 contact hours and is available for free on the SUNA Web site (CNE processing fees apply). This activity may be viewed online or downloaded to be used for group presentation in your facility or chapter.
