This book provides a practical, evidence-based overview of the supportive care of patients with urological failure, covering issues such as quality of life measurements, the role of the multidisciplinary team, and psychological and social support for patients, families and carers. The bookfocuses on chronic symptoms such as chronic prostatitis. It begins by looking at quality of life measurements, self-help strategies, the role of the interdisciplinary team, and psychological and social support. It then moves on to clinical chapters which cover issues such as patients who present with hematuria, urinary retention, urinary incontinence,neurological disease affecting the urinary tract, chronic prostatitis, and infertility; ending with a chapter on supportive care for the urology patient and family in the future. The book places a special emphasis on symptomatic interventions, particularly in the setting where the course of theillness cannot be modified.
