Abstract

This proposal details an evaluative study into the management of faecal incontinence by nurses in two Intensive Therapy Units. Faecal incontinence can be defined as the involuntary loss of rectal contents through the anal passage. In the UK, prevalence figures of FI are sketchy, with the Department of Health (2000) estimating it at 25% in institutional care.

Aim The initial aim is to perform an evaluation of current practice in faecal incontinence (FI) management in two intensive therapy units. Methods Stage 1: A systematic rapid appraisal review in the management of faecal incontinence in acute settings. A steering group will be formulated, with all key stakeholders, including the study personnel, consultant lead, members of the show case hospital personnel and service users. Stage 2: Observation of current practice in the intensive care units. Current protocols will be assessed for implementation and practice. Prevalence and aetiology of FI in the intensive care units will be recorded during a three month time frame.
