This study was conducted to evaluate nursing intervention to enhance the efficacy of a home-based pelvic floor muscle exercise (PFME) in treating mixed urinary incontinence among a community-based population. Eighty-eight women with mixed incontinence were recruited for this study and were asked to practice PFME at home as instructed. A registered nurse monitored the study group via telephone checkups twice a week. The Symptoms (LUTS) Questionnaire and a disease-specific questionnaire of impact index were used for repeat measurements before intervention, at 3 and 6 months after PFME. Symptoms such as frequency, nocturia, urge incontinence, and urinary stress incontinence improved significantly in the study group at 6 months. Quality of life with regard to worry about pads/towels leakage and getting wet also improved in the study group at 6 months. Nursing intervention can significantly improve the efficacy of a home-based PFME program in community women with mixed storage symptoms.
