Description/Abstract

Selecting continence products for an individual patient or hospital contract is often a daunting task. This article describes the evaluation process developed for a program of government-funded multicenter evaluations of continence products established in the United Kingdom to provide an evidence base for product selection. The essential requirements of an evaluation are discussed, together with the methodological and statistical issues that such evaluations present. The strengths and limitations of mulitcenter trials are examined and suggestions are made regarding other areas of nursing in which this approach could be usefully adopted.
