International Consultation on Incontinence Questionnaire Paediatric Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (ICIQ-CLUTS)

The ICIQ-CLUTS is a self-administered 12-item screening questionnaire for peadiatric LUTS. There are two versions of the questionnaire, 1 for children and 1 for parents/carer. It consists of 9 specific items investigating LUTS and 1 asks about weekly defecation frequency. It is suggested that due to literacy problems the child version of the questionnaire should only be administered to children over the age of 9 years. Responsiveness is yet to be tested for this module and we would happily invite further testing of this parameter to increase the robustness of this module.
