Driving Excellence in the The Management of Nocturia - Scott MacDiarmid

Scott MacDiarmid and Diane Newman discuss the urologist's role in the management of nighttime frequency or nocturia.  Dr. MacDiarmid discusses the need for urologists to start thinking differently when it comes to the management of nocturia. He calls for the urologists to recognize that they are the experts in this area, identify the patients, and be proactive in treatment.  He discusses both isolated nocturia symptoms and in the context of other 24-hour voiding dysfunction conditions. The discussion takes shape with driving excellence in the treatment of the condition and taking actionable steps in the diagnosis and management of nocturia.
