Behavioural Intervention Groups

Dr Rona Agnew, Manager NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde Bladder and Bowel Services explains Behavioural Interventions Groups to promote continence.

The introduction of Behavioural Intervention Groups, which bring groups of up to ten women together for bladder education, has dramatically improved clinic appointment attendance rates from 25% to 75% in a region of Scotland.

Watch Rona Agnew, Service Manager for NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Incontinence Services, talk about the benefits to all age groups of attending Behavioural Intervention Groups.

In particular she talks about a 98 year old woman who, after attending the Behavioural Intervention Groups, improved to such an extent that she no longer needed to use containment products.
