The aim of this study was to estimate the prevalence of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) among female elementary school teachers in Taipei. A total of 520 self-administered surveys were distributed to 26 elementary schools in Taipei City. Data analyses were based on 445 usable surveys. The prevalence rates for different types of LUTS ranged from 9.9 to 44.5%. The prevalence of urinary incontinence (UI; 26.7%) and nocturia (16.0%) fell within the prevalence estimates of these LUTS in North Ame...

Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS), including urinary incontinence, negatively affect women’s quality of life. Employed women are particularly prone to experiencing the negative aspects of LUTS due to their irregular access to toilet facilities. In Taiwan, about 70% of women 25–44 years of age are employed, yet little research on LUTS in the workplace has been conducted. In this article, the development of a Chinese instrument for estimating prevalence of LUTS and identifying factors related to...

Background: Increasingly, hospitals are using sites on the World Wide Web (Web) to market their services and products and to advertise employment opportunities. These Web sites are a potential resource for information on the hospitals' nursing care and nurses' impact on patient outcomes. Objective: The aim of this study was to explore the presence of nursing-accessible and visible data on nurses, nursing practice, or nursing care-on hospital Web sites. Methods: A random sample of 50 hospital Web...

Background: Urinary incontinence (Ul) affects large numbers of adults, especially older adults, with an estimated 200 million adults worldwide having this life-altering condition. Objectives: To identify key populations at risk for urinary incontinence and propose population-based strategies to promote continence with a substantive focus on Ul prevention. Methods: Critical review of extant literature and iterative synthesis were undertaken to generate an action plan to guide future Ul prevention...
