Overactive Bladder

Read the paper on our Overactive Bladder Standard Set that was published in the International Urogynaecology Journal.


The ICHOM Standard Set for Overactive Bladder is the result of hard work by a group of leading physicians, measurement experts and patients. It represents the outcomes that matter most to patients who have had a Overactive Bladder. We urge all providers around the world to start measuring these outcomes to better understand how to improve the lives of their patients.
