Short Description of Instrument
The International Consultation on Incontinence Questionnaire Overactive Bladder Questionnaire (ICIQ-OAB) is a brief module that screens and assesses impact of symptoms of OAB on Quality of Life and outcomes of treatment.
As this questionnaire is short, it may be a useful adjunct to the IPSS because the ICIQ- OAB includes a question on urinary incontinence.
Note: An alternate, more comprehensive assessment tool for lower urinary tract symptoms would be ICIQ-MLUTS (males) and its companion ICIQ-FLUTS (females). Also, an ICIQ-Neuro scale is under development.
The ICIQ-OAB is scored from 0-16 overall score with greater values indicating increased symptom severity. "Bother" scales (rated 0-10) are not incorporated in the overall score but indicate impact of individual symptoms for the subject.
