Enuresis is the repeated voiding of urine into bed or clothes. Proposed causes are psychological, biological and social/environmental. However, the etiology of enuresis is not fully understood. Furthermore, no research was found that analyzed enuresis in foster care children. As such, further research is needed to identify risk factors for children in foster care as well as tips and strategies to better support foster children, their caregivers, and providers.
