Research priorities for continence care identified

  • Comment

The top ten research priorities in continence care have been published by the James Lind Alliance.

The most highly ranked priority is identifying the optimal pelvic floor muscle training protocols for the treatment of different types of urinary incontinence.

The James Lind Alliance Urinary Incontinence Priority Setting Partnership was established in 2006 to identify research uncertainties in the treatment of urinary incontinence. Key organisations representing patients, carers and clinicians were involved. These included the Association for Continence Advice, British Geriatirc Society, MS Trust and Bladder and bowel Foundation.

The James Lind Alliance was established in 2004 with the aim of encouraging patients and practising clinicians to work together to try to ensure that the most important uncertainties, which affect everyday clinical practice, are addressed by research.
