Live Surgery Endorsement

Faced with a keenness to preserve live surgery events, and in the light of the anxiety about them, the EAU Executive Board established an ‘Ethics of Live Surgery Panel’ charged with producing a policy on live surgery for the association. This policy has now been established, and will be monitored by a new ‘EAU Live Surgery Committee’ (LSC).

The benefits of this new policy are numerous. The patient’s safety will be paramount, the organising centre will have a clear framework within which to plan and execute meetings and the LSC will monitor and audit these events. All live surgery events at any EAU congress or meeting will have to meet these requirements. Read the Live Surgery Endorsement Guide and learn more on how to apply for endorsement.

To get your live surgery event endorsed by the EAU Live Surgery Committee, please submit your request at least 4 months prior to your event via the online application form.
