Recruits sought for urinary incontinence study

Recruitment is underway for a pilot study at the continence clinic in Surrey’s Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre.

Candidates are being sought by the clinic in order to evaluate whether group exercise and behavioural therapy can decrease urinary incontinence and improve quality of life in men who continue to be incontinent for more than a year after prostate surgery.

If you are interested in participating, or for more information, visit www.groupmalestudy.com or call 604-582-4550, Ext. 762416.

The study is being launched with $5,000 in funding from Surrey Memorial Hospital Foundation.
Established in 1992, Surrey Memorial Hospital Foundation has raised more than $60 million to purchase medical equipment, fund innovative programs, and support training and research.
