Self-Management Guide for Older Women with Urinary Incontinence
An evidence-based booklet to support older women with urinary leakage and other symptoms.
Urinary incontinence is a distressing condition that limits women’s quality of life and places a heavy burden on health care services. Together with health professionals, academic researchers and women living with this condition, this self-management booklet was developed through reviewing existing evidence and individual interviews. Positive results are shown on symptom severity and anxiety status when it was tested with 50 women in a randomised control trial. Despite the need of a large clinical trial, this booklet is feasible and acceptable for older women with urine leakage.
