PF1 Assignments and Readings

In order to derive the most benefit from this course, we ask our participants to internalize the required reading materials and complete a diary assignment prior to attending. Please complete this assignment prior to the first day of the seminar.


We ask that participants keep a personal bladder diary measuring and recording fluid intake and urine output for two days - one work day and one non-work day. Specific measurements (use a large measuring cup or urine collection “hat”) of urine output are needed for at least one day, and on the following day one can estimate by counting seconds while voiding.
