** Improving pelvic floor muscle training adherence strategies: from theory to practice Survey**

The Physiotherapy Committee (Dr Helena Frawley, Assoc Prof Chantale Dumoulin, Dr Doreen McClurg), together with an expert panel, is investigating adherence strategies for pelvic floor muscle exercise training as part of this Consensus Meeting in Glasgow in August. Adherence to pelvic floor muscle training is a crucial component of an effective intervention.

 

Comments are sought from interested health professionals (clinicians, academics or researchers) who have an interest in incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse or pelvic-perineal pain, and from members of the public (patients / carers / consumers) who have experience with any of these conditions in a personal or support capacity. We seek responses and comments to the following questions:

     (1) what do you think are the barriers to adherence to pelvic floor muscle exercises?

     (2) what do you think are the facilitators or strategies to improve exercise adherence?

     (3) what ideas for future research into this area do you have?
