Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Urinary incontinence is a complicated problem, both in terms of diagnosis and treatment. There are, however, quite a few therapies for its treatment. Teleac, a Dutch broadcasting company for adult education, has offered people who suffer from urinary incontinence 'a training therapy' on a distance. This therapy consists of exercise of the lower pelvic muscles, bladder training, relaxation exercises, and advice on posture. On average, there were 140,000 viewers per broadcast. After the course, 51% of the students experienced an improvement of their urinary incontinence. Also, 83% were satisfied with the result of the course. The results suggest that a mass media approach offers major opportunities for secondary prevention of urinary incontinence.
