The ICS Standardisation Steering Committee is pleased to confirm that we have a new terminology document Working Group (WG) open for application-the ICS Terminology for Conservative Management of Male Lower Urinary Tract and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction (SSCWG21). Comprehensive and precise descriptions will assist this, leading to more accurate reporting in this field.
The terminology around the conservative management of male lower urinary tract (LUT) and pelvic floor (PF) dysfunction has not been collated into a single document, leading to uncertainty, confusion and unintended ambiguity. As several disciplines have a role in this field, more standardised terminology would aid inter-disciplinary communication and understanding. The ICS Standardisation Steering Committee (SSC) is launching a Working Group on the Terminology for Conservative Management of Male Lower Urinary Tract and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction to provide clarity of definitions and terminologies required for research and clinical practice.

This can be a time-challenge, one however with considerable professional satisfaction on completion, that you personally have contributed to “getting the basics right” in a particular aspect of the fields we cover. 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.
Bernie Haylen Chair, ICS Standardisation Steering Committee
