The Experience of Men Managing Fecal Incontinence The prevalence of fecal incontinence [FI] in community-living persons has become increasingly evident from epidemiological studies conducted from around the world. A recent systematic literature review of population-based studies found that the prevalence of FI in community-living men across different age groups (5-8%) was only slightly less than that in women (7-9%). Little is known about how men's experiences of FI may differ from women's experiences. The aims of this study of community-living men with FI were twofold: 1) to understand the experience of men with FI from the perspective of the men, and 2) to elicit men's practical knowledge about self-care and management strategies for FI. The proposed research question for this study was: "What is the experience of men who suffer from FI and how do they manage the problem?" Van Manen's phenomenological research methodology was used for this project. Ten men were recruited from a sample of Dr. Bliss's prior work on FI in the past. Inclusion criteria were: 1) Men who are English speaking, of sound mind and live independently; 2). Men who have been managing the problem of FI for at least 1 year. Unstructured audio-taped interviews were conducted and transcribed. Data were analyzed using Van Manen's approach to analysis producing essential themes. Preliminary analysis of the data produced themes related to the lifeworld existentials lived space, lived time, lived relationships, and lived body. Implications for nursing practice include formulating questions to assess the characteristics and nature of FI and structuring FI intervention and evaluation parameters that are sensitive to men's experiences
