Despite the growing evidence in the field of lower urinary tract symptoms, the development and interpretation of guidelines remains difficult. Health care providers, policy makers and patients need to be aware of potential pitfalls. This workshop aims to provide ICS members with important background knowledge to enhance quality of future guidelines.
Unable to cover all aspects of guideline development, we will focus on the following aspects:
- The impact of the setting from which evidence arises.
- Interpretation of associations (risk factors), especially Odds Ratios for common conditions.
- Statistical significance and clinical relevance of treatment outcomes.
