A follow-up study by Cotterill et al (2011) aimed to determine the psychometric properties of a new questionnaire developed to address anal incontinence, the International Consultation on Incontinence Questionnaire-Bowels module.


Using a patient qualitative questionnaire, the study purports that the International Consultation on Incontinence Questionnaire (ICIQ) Bowel module appears to be a psychometrically robust, self-report instrument for the evaluation of anal incontinence and its impact on quality of life.
