Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) are prevalent in older women. These symptoms are often under-reported due to the potentially embarrassing nature of the symptoms and a belief that they are an inevitable consequence of ageing. LUTS such as urinary incontinence have a significant negative effect on people's quality of life; however, with the appropriate assessment and management, improvements can be achieved.

It aims to provide nurses with an understanding of LUTS so that they can identify appropriate interventions.
