In this seminar, you will hear an overview of findings from a major cutting-edge study, funded by the Medical Research Council and carried out by researchers at the University of Bristol, examining factors associated with incontinence in a large UK cohort (Children of the Nineties).

The goal of the ROCCA study is to improve understanding of the risk factors and outcomes associated with incontinence in children and adolescents.

Childhood continence problems are common but research in this area is relatively scarce. Incontinence in children can persist into later childhood and adolescence and have a serious impact on quality of life.

The main findings of this study cover:

• Early childhood risk factors associated with childhood incontinence.
• Patterns of childhood incontinence that persist into adolescence.
• The impact of incontinence on young people.

The seminar will be of interest to professionals working in the field of childhood bowel and bladder conditions, including policy makers, commissioners, paediatricians, urologists, gastroenterologists, paediatric continence nurses, GPs, health visitors, CAMHS professionals, teachers, school nurses, and young people with continence problems.
