Abstract

To investigate fidelity to intervention delivery, dose and uptake in a randomised controlled trial (RCT) comparing EMG biofeedback (BF) assisted pelvic floor muscle training (BF-PFMT) versus PFMT alone (PFMT), both comprising six appointments with a home programme. Investigating what actually happens clinically in intervention delivery compared with the trial protocol (1) is important; this type of study, previously uncommon in PFMT research, helps explain trial results.
