Managing and teaching intermittent catheterisation - Abstract

Intermittent catheterisation provides a safe and effective alternative to indwelling catheterisation for many patients who require bladder drainage.

It can be undertaken by health professionals in a variety of clinical settings for a range of clinical indications and, more commonly, by patients themselves. This article will consider intermittent catheterisation, its indications as a bladder drainage technique and considerations for community nurses when teaching the technique.
