Group Learning Achieves Decreased Incidence of Lower Urinary Symptoms - Interview with Tomas Griebling

November 6, 2018

(Length of Discussion: 6 min)

Tomas overviews his data on group training for behavioral therapies for women with urinary incontinence with the focus on standardization and uniformity of trainings and materials. The Gladiolus study is a three-site randomized controlled trial which compared the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of a group-administered behavioral treatment program to no treatment. Over 450 women with stress, urgency, or mixed urinary incontinence were recruited and screened centrally, evaluated clinically, and randomly assigned to one of two treatment arms.
