Formatted Abstract/Summary Objective: To establish the effectiveness of educational interventions for raising men’s awareness of bladder and bowel health.

Discussion: There is little quantitative evidence for the effectiveness of interventions to improve men’s awareness of bladder and bowel health. Therefore few recommendations can be made. PME with or without additional interventions such as biofeedback could be used to reduce the incidence of urinary incontinence in men who have had a prostatectomy. (Level 1). The use of evidence-based guidelines for improving men’s awareness of bladder and bowel health is not supported on current evidence. Whilst it cannot be said that guidelines of this type would not be effective, it must be stated that the evidence to make this claim unquestionably is unavailable.
