  • 1. ISQ-SR is a reliable and valid tool to measure psychological stress associated with working with urinary incontinent patients. 2. ISQ-SR can be used to measure efficacy of continuing education programs aimed at reducing staff stress associated with urinary incontinence. 3. Eighty percent of the staff reported that they looked for ways to help patients with their incontinence all the time, but only 50% said that they felt comfortable working with urinary incontinent patients all of the time. 4. Sixty-three percent of the staff reported that they felt frustrated about working with urinary incontinence some of the time, indicating a need for continuing education.
