Abstract

Interstitial cystitis (IC) is a chronic, painful, debilitating bladder disorder which predominantly affects women. The etiology of IC is unknown, the diagnosis is difficult to make, and treatments are aimed at minimizing symptoms. IC affects every aspect of an individual's life. Both generalist and advanced practice nurses play a vital role in enhancing the IC patient's quality of life through emotional support and education.
