Call for Manuscripts for Special Focus Issue on Pre- and Post-Operative Care of Patients

Urologic Nursing is planning a special issue for 2021 that will offer patient and clinician education related to urology procedural care in the office, surgical center, or operating room. There are few evidence-based care guidelines on this topic, so we need your expert opinions.

We are looking for submissions that relate to any aspect of office-based, surgical center, or inpatient urology patient management and teaching. This includes such topics as:

  • Patient handouts/written instructions for any procedure (Botox, self-catheterization teaching, bladder instillations).
  • Checklists used for patient care.
  • Verbal instructions given to the patient.
  • Pathways or plans you use for patient care (for example in robotic prostatectomy – catheter removal, antibiotic usage, follow-up schedule).
  • Care of suprapubic tube.
  • Care of nephrostomy tube.
  • Pessary care.

Submissions can also take any form, including a “clinical pearl” or trick that you have learned in your time caring for urology patients.

Please submit manuscripts for consideration by March 15, 2021, to:

Editor, Urologic Nursing

Note: Please include “2021 Special Issue on Patient/Clinician Education” with your cover letter and manuscript.
