AbstractThis article addresses physical and psychosocial issues in neurogenic bladder management. The impact of neurogenic bladder and its assessment will be discussed. There are a wide range of treatment options available to manage neurogenic bladder dysfunction and this article offers an overview of key management techniques, including non-invasive techniques, self-intermittent and suprapubic catheters, medication and surgical management. The importance of the nursing role in assessment, teaching and supporting patients by enabling them to make informed choices about their bladder management is addressed.
