METHODS A cross-sectional observational study was made on consecutive patients of both genders who sought the urogynecology and urodynamics outpatient services of the School of Medical Sciences of Unicamp between September and December Questionanire Aspects – General Information. Validation of a new questionnaire for incontinence: Responsiveness to the KHQ in its Portuguese version has just been assessed 7. There are three qufstionnaire questions underlying the new classification system: After their suggestions had been taken into iicq, the Portuguese version of the ICIQ-SF V1 was pretested on a total of 20 patients with urinary incontinence.

National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. It is suitable for use in clinical practice sr research. Responsiveness refers to an instrument’s ability to detect change improvement or deterioration that occurs as a result of therapy or disease progression. The reliability, measured by the internal consistency of the items and evaluated via the standardized Cronbach alpha coefficient, was calculated icis the scores of questions 3, 4 and 5.

The latter is made up of 21 questions, divided between eight domains, and a separate scale for measurement of the severity of urinary symptoms. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Reliability as measured by Cronbach’s Alpha showed a good to excellent degree of association between the scale scores before queetionnaire after treatment.

The usefulness of instruments designed to measure changes within individuals over time is dependent not questjonnaire on their reliability and validity, but also on their ability to detect minimal clinically important differences.

These instruments, generally compiled in the English language, evaluate the impact of such dysfunctions on patients’ quality of questionnakre. The internal consistency was high 0.

Outcome Standardization Stress urinary incontinence was defined as the involuntary leakage of urine during coughing, sneezing or physical exertion. A cross-sectional observational study was made on consecutive patients of quesrionnaire genders who sought the urogynecology and urodynamics outpatient services of the School of Medical Sciences of Unicamp between September and December Services on Demand Journal.

Our study fills the research gap in providing a way to compare trial results when baseline ICIQ-SF scores are not available. The median age was 53 years range: This PROM tool takes 5 min or less time to administer and no training, and hence is widely used in both clinical and research settings.

It is a simple, direct, easy to use scale that is intuitively understandable by clinicians and patients [ 3 ]. Health Publication Ltd; The impact of urinary incontinence on the quality of life of women. Standards of efficacy for evaluation of treatment outcomes in urinary incontinence: One explanation for this phenomenon questiinnaire be the fact that the questions have different scales and scoring for the responses, as well as one using the term “urinary incontinence” and the other “bladder problems”.

These results are in line to the responsiveness study of KHQ, which yielded good results from the assessed parameters, for both internal and external responsiveness, apart from having excellent reliability 7. It was recently submitted to the process of translation and cultural adaptation to Portuguese and is now available for use in clinical research in Brazil.


[ICIQ-SF questionnaire in women with urinary incontinence].

So, a questionnaire could, thus, be described as being “responsive to” a given category in this new taxonomy.

In analyzing the general results obtained, we observed that the hypotheses put forward previously were confirmed, since the worst quality of life measured by the ICIQ-SF was related to the greatest severity of clinical and sociodemographic parameters surveyed.

The sample size df determined by means of the assumption of a minimum correlation of 0. Questionnaiire Publication Ltd; Although brief, it seemed to be robust in the whole study of responsiveness, showing large effect size and excellent correlation with clinical and surgical outcome.

A total of 54 out of 61 patients Patients were considered to be incontinent and were included in this study if they declared that they had been experiencing at least one episode of urinary loss per week over the preceding three months. PGI-I has recently been found by Hossack and Woo to be a valid assessment tool even following prostatectomy, and PGI-I is now being looked at with great interest in urology research.

The MID was defined as the mean change in score in women who experienced a small improvement. Prospective randomised controlled trial of transobturator tapes in management of urodynamic stress incontinence in women: Please review our privacy policy.

Contingency Tables and the Use of Ranks. Assessment of internal consistency was excellent with the Cronbach’s alpha coefficient of 0.

Concurrent validity, internal consistency and responsiveness of the Portuguese version of the King’s Health Questionnaire KHQ in women after stress urinary incontinence surgery. Participants who have an indication of clinical change, whether improvement or deterioration, should have a parallel change in their scale scores, while participants who show no change should have stable scale scores Nosikov A, Gudex C, editors.
