ICIQ-Overactive Bladder

Purpose of module The ICIQ-OAB provides a brief and robust measure to assess the impact of symptoms of overactive bladder on quality of life and outcome of treatment. This short and simple questionnaire is also of use to general practitioners and clinicians in both primary and secondary care institutions to screen for overactive bladder, to obtain a brief yet comprehensive summary of the level and impact of overactive bladder and to facilitate patient-clinician discussions.
