Summary

Background: Urinary incontinence is a condition in which the patient experience involuntary leakage of urine. It is a significant global health issue which annually affect millions of people. However, statistics on prevalence and epidemiology on the condition is limited, which might be as the condition is considered stigmatizing in many populations. Aim: The aim of this empirical study was to describe the nurse’s role in the care of females with urinary incontinence. Method: A qualitative study with semi-structured interviews was the most appropriate method to use. Twelve nurses was interviewed, the data was analysed with an inductive approach and content analysis. Result: Three main themes were identified; To give emotional support, Providing knowledge and access to information and The nurse’s interaction with the female. The findings show that the role of the nurse in the care of females with urinary incontinence is more complex than expected. Conclusion: The result indicates that the role of the nurse is an important part for the female to feel secure and understood. The emotional support provided by the nurses' is a central element of the care. It is important to increase the knowledge about the condition since the female’s often feel ashamed to talk about their condition.
