Non-surgical Treatments for Urinary Incontinence in Adult Women: Diagnosis and Comparative Effectiveness

Slide: 31 of 50

Summary of Evaluation and Treatment Monitoring

Multiple validated instruments can be used to monitor UI treatment success by detecting meaningful changes in symptoms and quality of life (QoL), as identified by women with UI. Clinical success is perceived by women when episode frequency is reduced by 50 percent or more (3- to 7-day diary). QoL improvements are perceived by women at a 70 percent reduction in frequency (as measured by the Incontinence Quality of Life Questionnaire and the Global Perception of Improvement and Incontinence Impact Questionnaire).
