To evaluate the feasibility and usefulness of an educational intervention (home workbook) for daytime wetting in children aged six to ten years.


The workbook was piloted with two groups of children with daytime wetting. One group (n=10) received verbal information only, while the other group (n=10) received the same verbal information and the workbook supporting the verbal information. Telephone surveys were undertaken every two weeks to monitor the child's progress.


The workbook was acceptable and usable by both children and parents, and was positively evaluated. Though the results do not show a clinically meaningful improvement in symptoms, they suggest a larger trial is worthwhile.


A simple, paper-based educational intervention for children and parents on the management of daytime wetting is acceptable and usable.
