In care settings for older people, the promotion and improved management of continence is a key theme in developing practice. Despite major advancements in the evidence base underpinning continence promotion and management of continence (DoH 2001b), there continues to be little emphasis placed on detailed and individualised assessment or programmes of treatment.  Literature suggests that in the utilisation of research in practice ?context? as a key issue McCormack et al (2002).  A two- year all-Ireland collaborative research project, (funded by the Northern Ireland DHSSPS R&D Office and the Republic of Ireland Health Research Board), between the University of Ulster, Belfast and  University College Cork is now completed.  Aim: To investigate the components of practice context that, enable or hinder proactive approaches to the promotion of continence and treatment in rehabilitation settings for older people. A case study methodology (Stake 2002) and multiple data collection methods were used in two rehabilitation settings for older people to: Determine contextual indicators that enable or inhibit effective continence promotion and continence management. Develop an instrument for assessing the contextual factors. Test the reliability and validity of the instrument in rehabilitation settings in Ireland and in the United Kingdom.  Aim of this presentation: To provide an overview of the project to include: Phase one: evaluating existing context and culture of practice and identifying the key detriments that impact on practice. Phase two: Instrument development, refinement and testing.   References: 1. Stake R. E. (2002) Case Studies. In N. Denzin and Y. Lincoln (Eds.), Handbook of qualitative research, 2nd edition.
