The draft guideline consultation has been updated. Due to a correction in the pharmacological section, the full guideline and NICE version have been updated. As a result of this, the consultation will now close on 26 March 2013
The scope for the update of the guideline on urinary incontinence in women has been updated to include the use of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) for overactive bladder. This intervention continues to be used in practice and so it is important that its effectiveness be re-assessed at this time to determine whether the current recommendation on TENS in the guideline should be updated.
