About

Assess prevalence of urinary functional disorders in women of 40 and more, visiting a general practitioner, occupational medicine or health examination center in Puy-de-Dôme. Study conducted for a month using a self-filled survey distributed by secretaries or nurses.

Full description

The diagnosis of urinary incontinence is clinical. Three types of urinary incontinence are described: urinary stress incontinence, urinary incontinence by overactive bladder or mixed urinary incontinence. To standardize the medical examination and to precise the urinary incontinence type, the use of a validated questionnaire is recommended (USP), the quality of life's resounding also must be assessing, using questionnaire of quality of life valid in French (ICIQ®, CONTILIFE®…) Several medical cares exist, but patients often don't know it. Unhappily, it is still a taboo subject. In a French medical study, conducted in 1992 by 60 general practitioners, of a total of 2911 female patients, 37% said they had urinary disorders. Among them, 77% said they had symptoms during an effort, 57% had urinary urge incontinence and 35 % had spontaneous leaks. One in five women had three associated disorders. In a French study conducted in 2005, it appeared that women talked to their general practitioner about urinary disorders only four or five times out of ten, and six times out of ten when they used panty liners. The results are eloquent, but the data is not recent, and the investigators need some, to propose better cares. This medical study will be conducted during one month. Two self-filled questionnaires will be distributed by nurses or medical secretary, working at recruited general practitioner's place, to every female patient who will be 40 years old or more, coming for themselves or accompanying somebody else (children for example). Every female patient will have to fill both questionnaires alone, anonymously, and will have to let them in a closed box, in the waiting room. The two self-filled questionnaires are called USP and CONTILIFE. They are both validated to evaluate symptoms and quality of life. Additional question about existence of fecal incontinence (and its type), and the reasons why patients didn't talk about it with their general practitioner spontaneously (shame, absence of information about cares, fatality…). Prior visit of each recruited service by Julie de la Roque, to explain the goals of the study, to general practitioners, nurses and medical secretaries.
