Behaviour modification improves urinary incontinence symptoms

  • Comment

Behaviour modification programs delivered by urology nurses reduces the severity of urinary incontinence, increases pelvic floor muscle strength, and reduces voiding frequency.

This is the conclusion of a randomised controlled trial involving 44 women with slight to severe UI. The women were randomized to a control group with no treatment and a treatment group.

The treatment group underwent a single group session lecture on behaviour modification and 2-4 weeks later their knowledge was assessed and reinforcements if needed.

After six weeks higher proportion of the treatment group (52.2%) had improved when compared to the control group(16.7%).

The authors suggest that group behaviour modification programs are cost- effective interventions in the treatment of urinary incontinence in women.
