PURPOSE

Knowledge about the underlying aspects and behavioral modification are important steps in coping incontinence. Education of the child and the family is therefore an inherent part of urotherapy. Many authors have proofed its positive outcome on incontinence in children and the familys QoL (Bachmann et al. 2006 / 2008, Hoebeke et al. 2006 / 2011; Van den Broeck et al. 2016; Hellström & Lindehall ).

Because nurses are not educated more in-depth in pedagogic principles they experience planing educational offers as a challenge.

In this workshop we will introduce didactics and methods in urotherapists education. Our aim is to do an interactive lecture mixing theoretical input and practical exercise.

MATERIAL AND METHODS

Step-by-step-instruction, including:  analysis of the problems, collection of information needed, determine contents, formulate learning objectives, methodological considerations, choosing teaching material, phase model of lessons and documentation of planning. We will use a case study and do some self-experience regarding methods

RESULTS

Workshop participants understand basic considerations in education planning and are able to plan an educational offer within urotherapy.

CONCLUSIONS

Pedagogical knowledge and strutured planning is the only way to succed in patient education.
