All delegates.
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
