Non-surgical Treatments for Urinary Incontinence in Adult Women: Diagnosis and Comparative Effectiveness
Outline of Material
The material begins with an introduction to urinary incontinence (UI) diagnosis and treatment.
The systematic review methods used to develop the comparative effectiveness review (CER) are presented.
The clinical questions addressed by the CER are presented, followed by the results of studies and evidence-based conclusions about effectiveness and adverse effects of non-surgical interventions for UI.
Gaps in knowledge revealed by the review process are presented. Some suggestions are made for what to discuss with patients and their caregivers, based on the review findings.
