Abstract Although urinary incontinence is a common problem among women and can seriously affect their quality of life, more than half of women report no discomfort with the disorder, and most do not seek medical help. In Turkey, women traditionally prefer not to seek medical advice for a urinary incontinence problem. Except for treatment-seeking behaviors, women practice coping methods for the management of urinary incontinence. The problem of urinary incontinence has been gaining more importance in recent years, and nurses' roles and responsibilities have been increased in this area. Consequently, there have been developments in Turkey related to the education of nurses.
