Clean intermittent self-catheterisation (CISC) is often a treatment option for women with urinary incontinence, particularly those with neurogenic bladder dysfunction. When used for appropriate patients it has been shown to promote continence and improve quality of life. There are a range of different products available on prescription for patients and many have been designed specifically with women in mind. Curan Lady is a new catheter that has recently been added to the UK NHS Drug Tariff. Patients suffering from limited/restricted mobility in their hands, found the Curan Lady easy to open and use. CISC can promote privacy and dignity for women with urinary incontinence and patient choice regarding product selection is important. Nurses need to keep up to date with new product availability for patients in order to offer choice to women performing CISC.
