A widely used 5 item scale for screening and diagnosis of erectile dysfunction (ED) and severity of ED in clinical practice and research.
The Sexual Health Inventory for Men (SHIM) was developed as an abridged version of the 15 item International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF). Evaluations of the SHIM have indicated high sensitivity and specificity, moderate-to-high correlations with a single-item self-assessment of ED severity, and significant correlations with improvement in erectile dysfunction and treatment satisfaction for both patient and partner.
