Clinical and urodynamic risk factors of recurrent urinary tract infections in patients with multiple sclerosis.

CONCLUSIONS: The severity and duration of MS is a risk factor for rUTIs. Urodynamic risk factors are compatible with a lower contractile capacity in patients with rUTIs, while the existence of NLUTD would not imply any specific risk factor. PMID: 31797803 [PubMed - in process]

This study aims to develop an asset mapping tool in collaboration with people with ID to gain insight into assets for healthy nutrition and physical activity in such settings. The tool is based on previous research and development continued in an iterative and inclusive process in order to create a clear, comprehensive, and usable tool. Expert interviews (n = 7), interviews with end-users (n = 7), and pilot testing (n = 16) were conducted to refine the tool. Pilot participants perceived the tool as helpful in pinpointing perceived assets and in prompting ideas on how to create inclusive environments with support for physic...

Once I got married, however, my husband and I started thinking more about what employment situation would work best for our family.  We ultimately decided that the best fit for me involved switching to an independent contractor. Here’s why: Flexibility Working for a staffing ...

CONCLUSION: Lower urinary tract symptoms, especially overactive bladder and urinary retention, are frequent in NMO. Low bladder compliance, serious urinary infections, and high prevalence of urinary retention requiring self-intermittent catheterization are the main symptoms significantly more frequent than in MS.
