by: Jai H Seth, Collette Haslam, Jalesh N Panicker

 “Patient performance of clean intermittent self-catheterization is a crucial component of the management of incomplete bladder emptying, which can arise from a variety of conditions. This allows patients to have more control over their bladder emptying, and avoids the inconveniences that come with an indwelling urethral catheter. There are, however, barriers that patients face when performing this task which may ultimately limit adherence. In the article, link below, these barriers are discussed in more detail with potential solutions to counter them."
