The evidence in the field of lower urinary tract symptoms is growing. More and more guidelines are being created. Methodological skills are vital for proper knowledge synthesis and interpretation. This workshop aims to provide ICS members with important methodological skills and to enhance a better synthesis and interpretation of scientific information.

Within the allotted time, we will focus on the following topics:
- Relative risks or odds ratios – how to interpret both in association to the prevalence or incidence rates?
- Statistical considerations vs. patient importance for treatment outcomes?
- What is a risk factor?
- GRADE methodology
