This application is an ideal response to NIDDK’s RFA for Stimulation Urologic Interdisciplinary Team Opportunity Research (SUITOR) because it focuses on the treatment of common, embarrassing, costly and under-treated disorders in minority women who face significant barriers to care and have been systematically left behind with respect to evidence-based non-surgical approaches to urinary incontinence. Given barriers to accessing physical therapy and the behavioral and mental health impacts of urinary incontinence, this project will evaluate the feasibility and efficacy of a culturally-specific, home-based, online, community health-worker supported, conservative intervention for urinary incontinence. We hypothesize that improvement in urinary incontinence symptoms of women receiving SUPPORT therapy will be non-inferior to those receiving the gold-standard treatment of in-person physical therapy and will lead to improved mental health.
