The international literature emphasizes the vast benefits of the effective implementation of evidence based nursing recommendations in improving patient care processes and enhancing health outcomes. The key role of nurses in the prevention, treatment and care of incontinence is highlighted. Studies have shown that UI is a neglected nursing care problem in Austria e.g. regarding diagnosis and nursing interventions. Nursing recommendations may enhance the frequency of diagnosis, the use of nursing interventions as well as decrease the frequency of daily UI in nursing home residents. Beside that little is known about nursing recommendations implementation regarding urinary incontinence in the nursing home setting, especially in the Austrian context.
The aim of this study is to measure the effectiveness of the implementation of evidence based nursing recommendations regarding UI in Austrian nursing homes.
