The ICS Standardisation Steering Committee is pleased to confirm that we have a new terminology document Working Group (WG) open for application-the ICS Sexual Health in Men with Lower Urinary Tract and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction (SSCWG22).
Lower Urinary Tract/Pelvic Floor (LUT/PF) and sexual dysfunction are highly prevalent in the aging male population. Both have a great variability in clinical presentation and in the perception by patients and health care providers in different part of the world, with different religious and socio economic environments being possible influencing factors.
Traditionally LUT/PF and sexual dysfunctions has been taught and learnt as separate entities. However there is clear evidence that both frequently coexist.
The ICS Standardisation Steering Committee (SSC) is launching a Working Group on sexual health in men with LUT/PF dysfunction to provide clarity of definitions and terminologies required for research and clinical practice.

You have helped clarify understanding and standardise communication. There’s an international camaraderie with other working group members and an individual and collective expansion of knowledge by being involved.
