The revised urinary incontinence scale: a comparison with other short urinary incontinence measures
The Revised Urinary Incontinence Scale (RUIS) contains 5 items drawn from the Urogenital Distress Inventory-6 (UDI-6) and the Incontinence Severity Index (ISI). Selection of the RUIS items was based on the examination of the psychometric properties of the items within these scales in a large community survey (N = 2915). The RUIS was developed to provide a short, psychometrically sound measure of urinary incontinence (UI) for both epidemiological and outcomes research.
As part of the clinical validation of the RUIS this study aims to provide comparisons with other short scales used to assess urinary incontinence: the International Consultation of Incontinence - Short Form (ICIQ-SF) scale, the UDI-6 and the ISI.
