Guidelines development is one of the core activities of the European Association of Urology as part of their educational efforts. The current corpus of available guidelines covers most of the urological field.
The aim of the EAU guidelines is to assist practicing clinicians in making informed decisions in a given circumstance; taking the highest quality scientific data, their patient’s personal circumstances, values and preferences into account.
A transparent production process and continuous updating are required to ensure that these guidelines documents are, and remain, of value to their users. It is imperative to continue to strive to improve the quality of these documents.
