Assessment and management of the care of children with nocturnal enuresis: guidelines for primary care.


Nocturnal enuresis is a common situation, which may or may not become pathological. The issue of nighttime control of urination is frequently raised in the primary care setting as parents deal with toilet training their children. All NPs who provide care to these families should be knowledgeable about the cause of enuresis and know when to intervene more aggressively. The majority of queries about enuresis will be successfully handled in the primary care setting with minimal intervention and sound anticipatory guidance, education, and support. This article describes the epidemiology, causes, assessment, and treatment for primary and secondary enuresis.
