17. Creating a Research Program to Promote Bladder Health in Adolescent Women...Society for Adolescent Health and Medicine Virtual Annual Meeting, March 10-13, 2021
Journal of Adolescent Health
The majority of women over the course of their lifetime eventually experience lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS), such as dysuria, urgency, or incontinence. It is currently unknown how to best promote bladder health in women across the life course. The Prevention of Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (PLUS) Research Consortium, funded by the National Institutes of Health, aims to identify factors that promote female bladder health from adolescence to older adulthood. PLUS recognizes the importance of adolescence as a critical period for prevention and the formation of lifelong bladder health behaviors. This research program description will introduce the PLUS Research Consortium and describe its adolescent-focused research components.
