Abstract
Introduction. Urinary incontinence is any incident of uncontrolled leakage of urine from the urethra, regardless of the cause. The aim of the study was to assess the dependencies of se-lected factors with the level of knowledge about urinary incontinence in women.
Material and methods. The diagnostic survey using the author’s questionnaire covered 207 women aged 30 to 40 from the Rzeszów poviat, The data were analyzed based on Pearson’s Chi-square test (χ2).
Results. A statistically significant dependence was found between the level of education and the level of knowledge about urinary incontinence (p = 0.001).
Conclusions. Women with higher education have more knowledge about urinary incontinence than women with secondary and vocational education. Educational activities should be aimed mainly at women with secondary and vocational education. The elimination of risk factors should be encouraged, as well as the necessity of early diagnosis of urinary incontinence and immediate treatment.
