|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. Its brevity also makes
the ICIQ-OAB an ideal research tool.
