Toileting assessment and toilet training for adults with learning disabilities with incontinence

Project Details


Incontinence is common in adults with learning disabilities (LDs). Behavioural toilet training in conjunction with toilet alarms is recommended or people with LDs, but there is a paucity of research, thus evidence-based practise, on behavioural toilet training for adults with LDs. The aim of this study is to assess the toileting needs and issues of 30 adults with LDs with incontinence, and determine whether a 12-week individualised positive behavioural support training intervention, with the use of toilet alarms, promotes continence.
