Nocturnal LUTS in older people is prevalent and bothersome symptoms however underdiagnosed. Clinicians lack confidence in how evaluating and treating the symptoms resulting in catheters and briefs. As nocturnal LUTS cannot be considered as benign a more stringent diagnostic workout is needed. Increasing clinicians their confidence will help them in starting up therapy and improving general health and comfort to patients. The focus of this workshop is improving diagnosis of nocturnal LUTS with a blink of the eye toward therapy.
