Research question: What are the influences of prompted voiding (PV) for urinary incontinence (UI) among older people in nursing homes? Research problem: This study aims to evaluate the effects of PV for UI of older people's subjects in nursing homes. Management of UI among older people is needed to overcome the possibility of new problem for older people. A randomized controlled study was performed of pre-test post-test design for 12 subjects (6 of control and 6 of intervention group). An intervention group followed PV instructions for 24 hours during 28 days, while the control group was instructed to urinate in toilet or to use diapers. Outcome variables were measured using incontinence severity index (ISI). There was statistically significant main effect across ISI among intervention group pre- (8.67 ± 1.97) and post- (6.67 ± 2.73) intervention of PV (P = .007). While there was statistically significant differenced ISI between control and intervention group (9.67 ± 1.86 vs 6.67 ± 2.73) post-intervention of PV (P = .005). There was higher reduced ISI in the intervention group (ΔM −2.00 ± 1.09) after 28 days of PV (P = .001). PV could be used to increase the older people's initiative to go to toilet and decrease incontinence episodes during a short time by their self in the nursing home.
