Faecal Incontinence in Adults PSP

Faecal incontinence is a common, devastating condition with a prevalence of up to 18% of the adult population. 

About the Faecal Incontinence in Adults Priority Setting Partnership

The Faecal Incontinence in Adults PSP will work with patients, carers and clinicians to identify and prioritise uncertainties about the epidemiology, aetiology, investigation and management of faecal incontinence and its associated conditions in the adult population or those under the care of adult healthcare services in the United Kingdom.

This will include identifying uncertainties around the impact of faecal incontinence on lives, the challenges of living with faecal incontinence, the stigma associated with the condition and the barriers experienced by patients and carers in accessing support. 

The initial PSP survey  launched in March 2024 and is now closed. More information will be available here when the shortlisting survey opens.
