During a remote telephone annual review a 56-year old woman with SPMS describes increasing urinary frequency and three UTIs in the last 6 months, which were managed by her GP. She is finding that she has more problems with constipation and one episode of incontinence for which she is really upset.
How are you going to support this lady, manage these symptoms remotely and improve her quality of life?
