A study by Cotterill et al (2015) described the development of the ICIQ-Long Term Catheter quality of life (ICIQ-LTCqol). This is a self-report questionnaire for the clinical assessment and evaluation of health-related quality of life for long-term catheter users.


Tested with over 370 participants the authors suggest their questionnaire provides a validated tool which can be implemented widely with the potential to provide better quality of life for long-term catheter users by using the tool in clinical practice to tailor treatment.
