  • Practice-Based Intervention To Improve Care for a Diverse Population Of Women With Urinary Incontinence

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The main goal of this clinical trial is to improve the care for urinary incontinence (UI) provided to adult women by primary care providers. The main questions it aims to answer are: - Can a practice-based intervention involving primary care providers lead to improved quality of incontinence care? - Will this intervention reduce the utilization of specialist care for urinary incontinence? - What effect will this intervention have on patient outcomes, including disease-specific outcomes, symptom severity, quality of life, and patient knowledge? - Does our intervention reduce disparities in care? Provider participants will be randomized at the office level to either an intervention group or a delayed intervention (control) group. The intervention group will receive an intervention consisting of academic detailing, clinical decision support tools, electronic referral, and the ability to refer to an advanced practice provider for co-management. The delayed intervention group will provide usual care until the crossover phase of the study, at which point they will receive the same intervention as the intervention group. Patient participants will bring up urinary incontinence with their primary care provider and complete three electronic surveys. Researchers will compare the intervention group to the delayed intervention (control) group to see if the intervention results in increased adherence to evidence-based quality indicators.

  • Beta-Agonist Versus OnabotulinumtoxinA Trial for Urgency Urinary Incontinence

    open to eligible females ages 18 years and up

    The goal of this clinical trial is to compare treatment outcomes between an oral medication (beta agonist) versus onabotulinumtoxinA injections in women with urgency urinary incontinence (UUI). Participants will be randomly selected to receive one of the two treatments. The primary outcome measure will be at 3 months, and women will be followed for a total of 12 months. Based on patient expert input, there are 2 primary outcomes: Treatment satisfaction and urinary symptom severity.

  • Outcomes of Urinary Incontinence Treatment in Primary Care: APP Co-Management and Electronic Consult

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    The burden of urinary incontinence (UI) on American women is immense in both human and financial terms, and continues to rise with the aging US population. Although numerous non-surgical management strategies have proven efficacy for both stress and urge urinary incontinence, there remains a lack of appropriate UI management in the primary care setting. The goal of this multi-site cluster randomized comparative effectiveness trial is to compare the effects of two methods of nonsurgical UI care delivery - electronic consult vs. advanced practice provider (APP) co-management. These two evidence-based, practice-changing strategies are designed to improve the quality of care for an ethnically diverse population of women with UI, and, by reducing deficits in care, obtain better patient-reported outcomes. Both arms of the study will include basic physician education (academic detailing) and electronic clinical decision support. In Arm 1, the investigators will implement an electronic referral system (electronic referral), in which specialists will electronically review referrals and make additional recommendations if appropriate primary UI care was not provided. In Arm 2, Advanced Practice Provider (APP) co-management will reduce the burden of care on the PCPs by providing UI care, patient education, and assisting with patient self-management through dedicated televisits (APP co-management).

  • Training for Urinary Leakage Improvement After Pregnancy

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    This is a multi-center, randomized single-blind nonsurgical trial conducted in approximately 216 primiparous postpartum women at high risk for prolonged/sustained pelvic floor disorders with symptomatic, bothersome urinary incontinence (UI) amenable to nonsurgical treatment. TULIP is a 3-Arm trial with two active interventions (Arms 1 and 2) and a Patient Education control arm (Arm 3). Arm 1 consists of pelvic floor muscle training (PFMT). Arm 2 uses a home biofeedback device (leva®). The primary outcome will be assessed at 6 months postpartum by blinded outcomes assessors, and follow-up will continue until 12 months postpartum.
