Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

UI is a common pelvic floor disorder (PFD) that affects up to 50% of women age 50 years and older and significantly diminishes quality of life. This mixed-methods project collects important information on women’s health literacy, which will contribute to the OT evidence base to inform future education-based health-promotion interventions.
