           Novel method of evaluating overnight urine characteristics in patients
           with nocturia
    • Abstract: Bower, Wendy F
      One of the aspects addressed in Workshop 4 was renal function in patients with nocturia. As with nocturnal enuresis in children, the symptom of interest depends upon the balance between kidney and bladder function and sleep mechanisms. Over-production of urine (polyuria), sub-optimal storage of urine (reduced voided volumes) or impaired sleep can all induce waking-to-void.

  • Volume 23 Issue 1 - An exploratory study of melatonin in children with
           nocturnal enuresis
    • Abstract: Waters, Karen A; Prentice, Bernadette; Caldwell, Patrina HY
      This exploratory study evaluated the use of melatonin to treat patients with nocturnal enuresis. Patients were seen at a tertiary paediatric outpatient clinic between February 2012 and March 2014. Data summarises results in children with nocturnal enuresis who returned for follow-up after being prescribed melatonin. Data collected from the medical records included: demographics, medical and sleep history, incontinence, any previous treatments and response to melatonin. Factors associated with treatment response are presented using descriptive statistics. A total of 39 children diagnosed with nocturnal enuresis were prescribed melatonin. Seven had no follow-up data so data for 32 patients are included. Most participants (94%) had not responded to prior treatment and had non-monosymptomatic enuresis (84%). Sleep problems were reported in all. After melatonin, 90.6% (29/32) reported sleeping better and 75% (24/32) became dry. In addition, 81.3% (26/32) now reporting waking to void, included: 80% (16/20) who used melatonin in conjunction with alarm training and 83.3% (10 of 12) who used melatonin without alarm therapy. Responders included 81.5% (22/27) who had previously failed alarm training and 95.5% (21/22) who previously failed desmopressin. This report of melatonin effectiveness as an adjunct for treating enuresis, suggests a need for additional studies to further define its role in the management of treatmentresistant enuresis.

  • Volume 23 Issue 1 - Faecal incontinence in older people in Australia and
           New Zealand: A narrative review
    • Abstract: Guinane, John; Crone, Rosie
      The aim of this narrative review is to describe current literature on faecal incontinence in older adults in Australia and New Zealand. The particular areas of the review are: prevalence, and the impact of faecal incontinence among older adults living in the community and in residential care facilities. Pubmed and Embase databases were searched for published articles relating to faecal incontinence in older adults in Australia and New Zealand. Several factors, including the use of various definitions and diagnostic tools, meant the studies found were unique and these heterogeneous results are presented as a narrative comparison. Nine publications were identified that examined the prevalence of faecal incontinence among older adults living in the community and in residential care facilities in Australia and New Zealand. They indicate a prevalence rate of 12-13% in the older population with a higher prevalence rate among older men and a prevalence rate of 50% of people living in residential aged care. There are various definitions of significant faecal incontinence and an international consensus definition used by researchers could improve future information. Five publications addressed either the aetiology; the impact or the diagnosis or assessment of faecal incontinence. In terms of diagnosis, the review found that the wider use of screening tools, in particular the Revised Faecal Incontinence Scale, may identify more people in the elderly population who have faecal incontinence. Important areas for future research in Australia and New Zealand are to better identify the prevalence of faecal incontinence in high-risk populations and to identify and provide more information about diagnostic tools that could be recommended for use in residential care facilities.

  • Volume 22 Issue 3 - An exploration of the efficacy of telehealth in the
           assessment and management of stress urinary incontinence among women in
           rural locations
    • Abstract: Conlan, Lee; Thompson, Judith; Fary, Robyn
      This case series aimed to investigate the impacts and acceptability of, as well as barriers to, physiotherapy assessment and treatment of six women with self-reported stress urinary incontinence, living in rural areas using telehealth technology. Women with selfreported urinary incontinence living in rural locations were recruited to receive an initial continence physiotherapy assessment and treatment session via telehealth. Severity of stress urinary incontinence, condition-specific quality of life and urinary leakage frequency were measured. Satisfaction with the telehealth assessment process and barriers to accessing skilled continence physiotherapists were also assessed. Six participants, aged 24-56 years, were determined to have moderate to severe stress urinary incontinence (range 6-17) at baseline, measured with the Modular Questionnaire-Urinary Incontinence Short Form. Six weeks following the intervention, all participants showed an improvement in urinary symptom scores, and four participants showed an improvement in quality of life and urinary leakage. Following intervention, all participants rated their condition as improved. There was high satisfaction with the telehealth method of delivery. The main barriers to access to a continence-trained physiotherapist were inconvenience and site-related factors. Initial assessment and management provided by a continence-trained physiotherapist via telehealth may be an effective solution to lack of access for women with stress urinary incontinence living in rural Australia.

           outcomes
    • Abstract: Tighe, Lindsay
      Questions have the power to change lives and yet, generally speaking, apart from being mindful of using open questions, practitioners are not aware of the benefits of questions. In this article I will explore the benefits of using a more questioning approach; that is, using well considered questions, and provide some simple tips that can make your questioning techniques effective in achieving better outcomes.

  • Volume 22 Issue 3 - Learning to accept incontinence and continence care in
           residential aged care facilities: Family members' experiences
    • Abstract: Ostaszkiewicz, Joan; Tomlinson, Emily; Hutchinson, Alison
      The psychological process of living in a residential aged care facility and being incontinent and dependent on another person for assistance with bladder and bowel function is largely unchartered. Likewise, little is known about the experiences and opinions of next-ofkin family members. As the function of many family members is as key advocate for residents, it is important to understand and share their perspectives about quality continence care. The aim was to explore next-of-kin family members' understandings and expectations about the concept of 'quality continence care' for their relative living in a residential aged care facility. The findings suggest shared indicators of quality continence care centre on practices that family members believe will maintain a resident's cleanliness and comfort, interpret the behaviours of cognitively impaired residents, optimise personal continence and autonomy, identify and address underlying medical conditions, and validate family member roles as advocates. The findings led to the development of a typology of family member beliefs and expectations about quality continence care, which could inform the development of future education programs for the aged care workforce, as well as the development and implementation of a best practice guideline for quality continence care in residential aged care facilities. By providing important insights into family members' understandings and expectations about continence care, the research contributes to international efforts to improve the quality of continence care for frail older adults.

  • Volume 22 Issue 2 - A longitudinal study of asymptomatic rectocoele
    • Abstract: Woodman, Jacqueline R; Cowan, Tim; Karantanis, Emmanuel; Moore, Kate H
      The aim of this study was to reassess symptoms and signs of asymptomatic rectocoele in women five or more years post initial diagnosis and to determine any factors associated with a worsened condition. Women diagnosed with asymptomatic demonstrable rectocoele and seen at one centre between 1992 and 1999, were recruited via letter, which included information about the study. Once consent was received, participants were sent the Birmingham Bowel and Urinary Symptoms Questionnaire and invited to attend for reassessment of their condition and examination. At this appointment, the main outcomes were the questionnaire, pelvic organ prolapse examination, and Baden- Walker scale.

      Of the 316 consecutive women diagnosed with asymptomatic rectocoele who were contacted, 130 letters were returned "address unknown", 18 declined to participate, 49 had died and 19 did not reply. Of 100 replies, 4/100 (4%) declined because they had had prolapse surgery, 96/100 (96%) returned the questionnaire, of whom 6/96 (6%) declined further consultation. Of the 90 remaining women who returned the questionnaire, 62/90 (69%) were examined at a median of 5.9 years (IQR 5.1 to 7.3) and 11 women had undergone prolapse surgery, leaving 51 women in the cohort. In 31/51 (61%) remaining patients, the rectocoele findings were unchanged: all remained asymptomatic; 20/51 (39%) had a more advanced rectocoele on examination but only 5/51 (9.8%) had developed overt symptoms. Rectocoele progression was not associated with age, body mass index, oestrogen status, pelvic floor muscle training, or a history of constipation. Rectocoele progression was associated with greater median bowel symptom scores on Birmingham Bowel and Urinary Symptoms Questionnaire 18.7 (8.2 to 23.7) than non-progression 12.3 (4.2 to 16.7), p=0.027. In most patients (89.2%) with asymptomatic rectocoele, symptoms and signs were unchanged at five years.

  • Volume 22 Issue 2 - Development of a long-form screening tool to identify
           clinically relevant co-morbidities of nocturia
    • Abstract: Bower, Wendy F; Ervin, Claire F; Whishaw, DMichael; Khan, Fary
      There are significant interactions between voiding at night and metabolic, cardiovascular, hormonal, mental health, sleep and inflammatory changes that flag nocturia as a likely marker of co-morbid medical conditions. The causal pathway of nocturia is multifactorial and di.ers between patients. However, there is currently no clinical tool to capture information about all-cause pathophysiology underlying nocturia. The aim of this study was to develop a comprehensive, multidisciplinary assessment metric to identify potential and co-existing causes of nocturia. Validated and reliable tools measuring co-morbidities were collected and discriminating items in each tool identified. A 57-item questionnaire was developed and pertinent clinical measures were added. The TANGO (Targeting aetiology of nocturia guides outcomes) Long-Form was piloted in individuals for feedback about the completion process. The tool was revised to 56 items and piloted in the clinical setting prior to use in data collection. The index question for the new metric established the frequency of nocturia at night, and bother this caused. Significant risk factors for nocturia > 1 per night and items from validated metrics capturing these variables followed. Demographic details relating to age, gender, work status, living arrangements and the number of years of education and training were added, along with a medical checklist. Six physical measures were identified. Psychometric testing is under way in five patient cohorts, with the aim of generating a TANGO Short-Form. Reliability testing is then planned.

  • Volume 22 Issue 2 - A scoping study of paediatric continence service
           provision in the Great Southern region of Western Australia
    • Abstract: Goetze, Emma; McLean, Katherine; Thompson, Judith; Jacques, Angela; Briffa, Kathy
      The aim in conducting this cross-sectional study was to survey 100 parents of children in pre-primary and year one in the Great Southern region of Western Australia to determine the number of children with urinary incontinence and, of those, how many were receiving treatment. The severity and associated risk factors were also investigated. Permission was sought from schools to recruit parents of children starting primary school to complete an online survey. Social media was used to enhance response rates. The response rate was 100/1665 (6%) of the total target population, 100/925 (10.8%) of children from participating schools. Overall, 40% of responders reported daytime urinary incontinence. Of the children with daytime urinary incontinence, 26.3% experienced mild and 73.7% moderate-severe daytime urinary incontinence. No child was reported to have severe daytime urinary incontinence. Nocturnal enuresis was reported in 46.9% of those who responded and 89.8% of children su.ered from at least one other lower urinary tract symptom. This study is significant as there are limited treatment options in regional Australia for paediatric daytime urinary incontinence. Only 23.7% of parents had sought medical treatment for their a.ected child. Further research is required to determine whether lack of parental awareness regarding the significance of incontinence and the availability of treatment services; or the lack of accessible services in regional and rural Australia is behind inadequate intervention for this condition. Larger sample sizes are required to accurately determine prevalence and to examine risk factors for daytime urinary incontinence in children.

  • Volume 22 Issue 1 - Active strategies needed to address
           incontinence-associated dermatitis in hospitalised patients
    • Abstract: Ostaszkiewicz, Joan
      Incontinence-associated dermatitis (IAD) is skin redness, with or without skin erosion, caused by contact with urine or faeces. It is distinct from skin conditions caused by other sources of moisture. It occurs on the buttocks, over the coccygeal area, rectal area, lower abdomen, upper thighs, gluteal cleft or groin, scrotum in men, or labia in women. Reported prevalence rates vary widely, depending on the methods used to define and measure the condition, the presence or absence of coexisting faecal incontinence and the clinical setting. The presence of IAD is an indicator of the quality of care, particularly as the condition can escalate if it remains unaddressed. There has been little consensus about the defining features of IAD and no methods to assess and measure the extent of IAD.

           urethral symptoms from a physiotherapy perspective: Case study
    • Abstract: Edmeades, Lynley
      This single case study discusses the physiotherapy management of a patient with postpartum symptoms and signs consistent with urethral and bladder prolapse: a Skene's duct cyst was the final diagnosis. The complexity of differential diagnosis for urethral symptoms emphasises the need for careful coordination between different health professionals, with appropriate diagnostic and management skills. The physiotherapist is well placed to monitor signs and symptoms that do not resolve and provide timely referral for the best outcomes for patients.

  • Volume 22 Issue 1 - A seating review may benefit patients with a spinal
           cord injury who experience poor urine drainage
    • Abstract: Jannings, Wendy; Thompson, Andrew
      A person with spinal cord injury who practises reflex voiding may experience poor urine drainage only when seated upright in their wheelchair. Referral to a seating therapist may be a useful intervention to review the individual's posture and the design of the wheelchair cushion to ensure that high perineal pressure is not occluding the urethra.
