Backgrond Information: Aging accompanies with deficiencies in different organs of the body. The most important organ that subjected to different problems in elderly age is the genitourinary system. Studies show that urinary incontinence exerts a great influence on physical, social, emotional and psychological activities of the patients; because this illness is considered embarrassing by patients which results in isolation from the society, self-esteem and life quality reduction. From among the mentioned therapeutic interventions, conservative interventions, especially interventions about life style and physical and behavioral interventions are highly recommended for urinary incontinence treatment that can be used in a self-care manner for the aged suffering from urinary incontinence.
Purpose: The current study was conducted in order to assess the effect of self-care training program on self-esteem and urinary incontinence in elderly men dwelling in Ilam and Sanandaj Nursing Homes in 2017 .
Subject population & method: The present study is a semi-experimental research. The sample consisted of 61 elderly men who suffered from urinary incontinence and dwelt in the rehabilitation and maintenance centers of two cities in the west of Iran. Samples were selected based on an available sample selection method and randomly divided in test and control groups. Data collection tools included Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale Questionnaire (RSES), Questionnaire for Urinary Incontinence Diagnosis (QUID), International Consultation on Incontinence Questionnaire - Short Form (ICIQ-SF), and a demographic information form. Data were analyzed by SPSS 18 software.
Findings: The results of QUID and ICIQ questionnaires indicated that there was a significant difference between two groups after the intervention (P <0.001). Also, there was a significant difference between the mean scores of self-esteem in the experimental group compared to the control group after intervention (P <0.001).
Conclusion: The results of current study indicated that samples in the experimental group had a significant improvement in control of incontinence and self-esteem compared to the control group. The training and application of these interventions by nurses of the elderly men can be useful in improving the urinary incontinence, quality of life and self-esteem in elderly men dwelling in nursing homes.
