Further study details as provided by William Beaumont Hospitals:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Index Estimation for Urinary Incontinence Prediction [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Several risk factors identified can serve as an index in predicting the development of urinary incontinence in elderly women.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Predictive Reliability of Urinary Incontinence Index and its Validation [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    The urinary continence index developed in Outcome measure 1 will reliably predict the development of urinary incontinence in women when tested against existing datasets.
