Abstract: Poster submitted to Simon Foundation for Continence's Innovating for Continence Series. Bedwetting or nocturnal enuresis (NE) is a widespread and distressing condition that can impact on the child/young person's behaviour and on their emotional and social life. The poster presents interim results evaluating the use of the bell and pad treatment for children with NE between 6-15 years and 11 months of age. Although the enuresis alarm is reported as treatment of choice in children with NE, no distinction is made between the body worn alarm and the bell and pad alarm in terms of effectiveness. Information from clinical records were collected to evaluate the use and success of bell and pad treatment from hospitals, community continence clinics and private practice. Results provide evidence of the bell and pad treatment which will be the basis for up to date guidelines and practical tools on the use of the bell and pad treatment as first line treatment for NE. This poster was awarded the first prize by the judges of this conference.
