A few words about Patients' Testimonials (True Stories)
It is a great honor for ISUD that individuals having a problem of urinary incontinence accepted to contribute in their own unique substantial way to this effort of ours to raise public awareness.
Four (4) women and two (2) men -with different types of urinary incontinence- are each one describing their own different story: from the first symptoms and the tough period when they kept the problem hidden, to the diagnosis, treatment and final resolution of the problem.
In ISUD, we would like express in public our deepest gratitude to those people who had the willingness to share their story, with the aim of their personal experience becoming a "lesson" for others that will help them treat their problem more easily.
The overall process for displaying real patients' testimonials was conducted in full compliance with the Greek Legislation and the National Data Protection Authority (HDPA).
Written informed consent was obtained from all participants. As for the films, all intellectual property rights are reserved to ISUD. It is strictly forbidden to broadcast, copy or use in any way the specific films.
