Despite its high prevalence, nocturia continues to be underdiagnosed, misdiagnosed, and suboptimally treated due to lack of awareness of the condition. Nocturia is not only bothersome but also negatively affects sleep quality, diminishes quality of life, and undermines the overall health, well-being, and productivity of a patient. This CME webcast features 3 urology experts highlighting the impact nocturia has on patients’ quality of life, reviewing best practices for screening and assessment, and presenting evidence surrounding available and emerging treatment strategies that address unmet needs in nocturia management.
