Young people with urinary incontinence

Use these resources to support children and young people with urinary incontinence across NSW.

Urinary incontinence is a common problem that affects up to 10% of children and young people under 25. It impacts on health, quality of life and health costs. Untreated, it can progress to adulthood. It can cause significant problems that impact on all aspects of life.

The PISCES (paediatric information, schema, continence, education, support) project:

  • reduced the variation in management due to lack of knowledge and lack of standard approaches to treatment
  • reduced long waiting times and improved access to see specialists.
