Systematic review of the prevalence of incontinence in people with dementia

I have a paper now in press with my colleagues Laura Cole and Prof Vari Drennan, as well as Dr Greta Rait and Prof Steve Iliffe of UCL. We review and critique the literature on incontinence problems among people with cognitive impairment and dementia. Clearly this is a terrible and important problem and with an ageing population, service planners and commissioners need to know the size of the problem in the community, yet little has been done to give us good estimates. Hope fully this will be out soon in Neurourology & Urodynamics.
