IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR USE: The Bladder Problem Questionnaire is suitable for adults 18+ years only. It does not constitute a medical device or substitute professional medical advice, professional diagnosis, service, treatment or monitoring of any condition. If you feel any discomfort or have any concerns or questions about your health, you should always consult a healthcare professional.
B-SAQ has been assessed in controlled clinical studies in people who had already identified they may have LUTS and/or urinary incontinence and and sought healthcare advice. In an independent review B-SAQ was found to meet the criterion for use by non-clinical staff and respondents as part of public health activity.6 Differences in results between men and women have been described. The questionnaire, in this setting, has been utilised to help people describe their symptoms and level of bother to a healthcare professional as part of a discussion about bladder health.
