A recent President’s Perspective blog from American Urogynecologic Society President Holly Richter, MD, PhD invited AUGS members to learn more about adapting Mind Over Matter: Healthy Bowels, Healthy Bladder (MOM) for their communities. MOM is an educational program focused on incontinence self-management created by Heidi Brown, MD, of the UW Ob-Gyn Division of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery.
The communication highlighted results from a study Brown published in Obstetrics and Gynecology in 2019, and shared available supports and resources for implementing the program. In addition to a well-developed facilitator training, MOM is recognized as an evidence-based program by the National Council on Aging, which means there is federal funding available through the Older Americans Act to support the MOM program.
