Example text

As with studies of adult faecal incontinence, these prevalence studies used variable definitions of incontinence, soiling and encopresis, as discussed previously. Issues of low response rate and difficulties with data collection are made more problematic in children because of the need for parental permission and assistance to take part in research. Faecal incontinence is very distressing for children, and they will often attempt to hide their incontinence from their parents [9]. Parents are often also embarrassed and distressed by their child’s incontinence, leading to under-reporting [19].
