This 90-minute webinar showcased he progress of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality’s (AHRQ) EvidenceNOW: Managing Urinary Incontinence (MUI) initiative. It featured five grantees working to help primary care practices implement effective nonsurgical treatments for urinary incontinence (UI) in women. The session highlighted publicly available resources, tools, and methods that have been developed by the MUI grantees and consider how these resources could be adopted in other practices to help improve UI care.
The EvidenceNOW Model is AHRQ’s blueprint to help primary care practices build capacity for quality improvement, implement new evidence into practice, and ultimately improve healthcare quality. Through the MUI initiative, AHRQ aims to identify key strategies and resources that can help close the gap between evidence and practice for treatment of UI in women.
By the conclusion of this webinar, participants:
- Learned about the progress of the EvidenceNOW: Managing Urinary Incontinence (MUI) initiative and the achievements achieved by its grantees.
- Explored the range of resources, tools, and methods developed by MUI grantees to support primary care practices in managing UI in women that could be adopted, adapted, or replicated in diverse healthcare settings.
