ICIQ-Nocturia

Purpose of module The ICIQ-N provides a brief and robust measure to assess the impact of symptoms of nocturia 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 nocturia, to obtain a brief yet comprehensive summary of the level and impact of nocturia and to facilitate patient-clinician discussions. Its brevity also makes the ICIQ-N an ideal research tool.
