Aims and Objectives
||Despite the growing evidence in the field of lower urinary tract symptoms, the development and interpretation of guidelines remains difficult. This workshop aims to provide ICS members (both guideline-developers and users) with important background knowledge to enhance the quality of future guidelines.
Within the allotted time, we will focus on the following aspects:
- GRADE methodology and systematic reviews & meta-analyses
- What is a risk factor?
- Interpretation of odds ratios for common conditions.
- Statistical significance vs. clinical relevance for treatment outcomes?
- The impact of the setting from which evidence arises
