Overactive Bladder

The standard set

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.
