Heidi Brown, MD, of the UW Ob-Gyn Division of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, and Nicholas Schmuhl, PhD, of the UW Ob-Gyn Division of Reproductive and Population Health, published the article After the Randomized Trial: Implementation of Community‐Based Continence Promotion in the Real World in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society!

The study gathered information on the adoption and implementation of Brown’s community-based continence promotion program Mind Over Matter: Healthy Bowels, Healthy Bladder by community agencies:

“A total of 67% of communities (four of six) adopted MOM, and 50% (three of six) maintained MOM. No implementation fidelity lapses occurred. Facilitators of adoption and maintenance included MOM's well‐organized protocol and lean time commitment, sharing of implementation efforts between partner organizations, staff specifically assigned to health promotion activities, and high community interest in continence promotion.”
