Background: The prevalence of Non-Monosymptomatic Enuresis occurs in 15 to 30% of children and conservative treatments should be the first line of indication.
Objective: This article presents the evaluation and treatment protocol of the Urology Outpatient Clinic/UROPEDFISIO, which has been shown to be adequate and useful for the care of children with non-monosymptomatic enuresis.
Results: The Urology Clinic/UROPEDFISIO protocol includes a form with a detailed anamnesis, with targeted questions, considering the symptoms of the lower urinary tract; description about eating and hygienic habits; a playful voiding diary; the pelvic floor rehabilitation program and information to parents, and also to their children, in a playful way.
Conclusion: The described protocol is simple, feasible and has shown promising results. It is hoped that with its dissemination, more health professionals will be able to use it and, thus, contribute to its improvement.
