Description

Summary

The purpose of this research project is to test the effectiveness of a previsit educational video designed to help women understand the risks and benefits of a midurethral sling for treatment of stress urinary incontinence. A total of 38 participants will be recruited from both the Urogynecology pre-operative clinic of the university of California, Irvine Medical Center and the Urogynecology pre-operative clinic at Kaiser Permanente, Anaheim and Orange County. Participants will be randomized either to watch a 10 minute educational video (intervention group) or read a standard handout describing the midurethral sling (control group). Participants will then complete their pre-operative visit in the usual fashion. Participants will complete a pre- and post- intervention knowledge questionnaire to assess the primary outcome (change in knowledge before and after intervention). Participants will repeat the knowledge questionnaire and complete validated questionnaires for satisfaction with decision scale and decision regret at 2 and 6 weeks post-operative.
