Summary The purpose of this study was to develop and validate a concise continence assessment form that can be completed by patients.
A prospective, descriptive, multi-site study was conducted at three major teaching hospitals over a 6 month period utilising a repeated measure design. The study was conducted over two stages: Stage One
consisted of developing the face validity and user friendliness of the instrument; Stage Two consisted of establishing the test-retest reliability of the instrument.
This paper discusses the process and results of the instrument development project. It highlights the clinical and statistical difficulties experienced in the development of the continence assessment form.
