Consequences of Urinary Incontinence

UI has several consequences, including psychological, physiological, socio-behavioral, decreased QoL, and cultural consequences. The breadth of areas in which UI impacts those with the issue is substantial. These consequences can be thought of as also precipitating the next episode of UI. Outputs and consequences of UI can create a cycle, which can positively or negatively impact the development of UI in the future. This is also characterized in the concept map attached as Figure 1.
