Standard Versus Mnemonic Counseling for Fecal Incontinence
Standard Versus Mnemonic Counseling for Fecal Incontinence: a Pilot Randomised Control Trial

This study compares standard versus mnemonic counseling for the treatment of fecal incontinence. A mnemonic is a word or rhyme used to aid memory. Our hypothesis is that women randomised to mnemonic counseling will higher recall of treatments, satisfaction with the physician visit and greater improvement in their quality of life when compared to women who received standard counseling.
