The following factors can relate to an individual’s responsiveness to prompted voiding:
- Recognizing the need to void;
- Higher number of self-initiated requests to toilet;
- Ability to void successfully when given toileting assistance;
- Ability to ambulate independently;
- More cognitively intact; and
- Higher completion of assigned prompted voiding sessions by care provider.
The best predictor of an individual’s response to prompted voiding is his or her success during a trial of prompted voiding.
