Cochrane Incontinence Group (CURE)

Summary

Incontinence is a major and neglected health problem and many interventions are in routine practice without evidence of their effectiveness. The Cochrane Incontinence Group was, therefore, set up to facilitate the systematic review of interventions to prevent or treat incontinence or to aid rehabilitation, including 'coping' strategies. The Group covers both urinary and faecal incontinence where it is the primary problem, and predominately uses evidence from randomised or quasi-randomised controlled trials for evaluating relevant health care interventions. For more information see: www.otago.ac.nz/cure/.

For further information on the Cochrane Collaboration see www.cochrane.org. Of the 49 published reviews in the Cochrane Library from the Incontinence Group 28 have involved an author from the Unit.
