Understanding Fear of Incontinence

Post by BagoL » Sun Mar 11, 2012 4:43 pm

Participants Needed for Research at University College London

Do you suffer from a fear of being incontinent?
Do you worry about losing control of your bladder or bowels?

Living with a fear of incontinence is particularly distressing and disabling. People with this fear often report that it causes them great distress, limiting their day-to-day activities and disrupting social relationships. This debilitating fear is currently poorly understood and those affected often suffer in silence without receiving help. Through this important research we hope to learn more about the concerns of people who fear being incontinent in public.

We are looking for participants to complete an online questionnaire, as part of our study, which is being conducted at University College London. Your information will increase our knowledge of this particularly distressing disorder, helping us to develop new and effective treatments which can improve the quality of people’s lives.

If you experience this fear, please click on the link below (or paste link into your browser) to find out more about the study.


The Ethics Committee for University College London has approved this research (reference number): 2850/001
