In the 21st century a clinician must be adept at facilitating shared decision making with patients. The evidence for competing interventions in the field of LUTS and prolapse is increasingly complex. Furthermore, clinicians must master the skill of presenting this evidence for patients. A sound interpretation of estimates of harms and benefits is therefore vital. This workshop aims to provide ICS members with important principles of evidence based medicine (EBM) to enhance a better interpretation of evidence and enable shared decision-making.
