Abstract

Aim:

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

Methods:

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.

Results:

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.

Conclusion:

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