Background: Urinary incontinence affects the quality of life for aging women. Research findings indicate that women often do not seek help in managing urinary incontinence due to lack of knowledge about urinary incontinence. There is some evidence that Korean American women are less likely than other women to seek help in managing urinary incontinence, however there have been no , no study to measure their knowledge and quality of life among Korean women with urinary incontinence. The first step in this research is to develop Korean versions of relevant measures. Purpose: The purpose of this pilot study is to evaluate the equivalence of the Korean versions to the original English versions of the measures. This is a pilot study for dissertation research. Sample: A convenience sample will be recruited for participation in this study. Inclusion criteria are 1) of Korean descent 2) age 30 or older 3) some degree of urinary incontinence by self-report. Both Korean and English version of measures will be administered to 20 bilingual Korean women with urinary incontinence. For face validity each participants will be asked whether these instruments were understandable. Methods: A descriptive-comparative design with a derived etic perspective will be used to evaluate equivalence between the English version of the knowledge and quality of life toward urinary incontinence and Korean version. Data collection will be conducted from Korean church located in Tucson. A pastor will be contacted in advance to get permission this population and recruitment will be announced in weekly bulletin board in the church. Data analysis will include correlation between total scores of both versions; psychometric properties of the two instruments will be computed for 130 aging Korean American women with urinary incontinence who will participate in a dissertation research to predict their health seeking behaviors. Implication: This study has two implications. First, validated and reliable instruments related to measure knowledge and quality of life toward urinary incontinence will be established for Korean women. Second, the result of this study is helpful to explain the health seeking in Korean women with urinary incontinence.
