Event Details

In this seminar, you will hear an overview of findings from this major leading-edge study, funded by the Medical Research Council, 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.
