REDUCING DISPARITIES IN URINARY CONTROL SYMPTOMS FOR MINORITY WOMEN

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

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.
