The project aims to provide men with stress incontinence following radical prostatectomy with the necessary aids and therapies. The main goal is to reduce the care deficit of this patient group with the help of an online intervention service (ProKontinenz) and to sustainably improve their quality of life by providing them with more information. Through better information, patients should be able to access a greater variety of aids and also make more frequent use of incontinence surgery. Furthermore, the information provided should reduce the out-of-pocket costs for patients and reduce the overall costs of aids through the use of incontinence surgery.
