The EAU is a strong and diverse community and we can learn from each other so that we can make the best decisions for our patients in this challenging time. While many of our colleagues and members are working on the front line to respond to the pandemic, the EAU is working to provide easy access to the most up-to-date information on COVID19 and urological treatment and care.
There are already resources available from the urological community on preparedness and prevention, and resilience and response to COVID19, focusing on urology and cancer patients at risk from the coronavirus. Our journal, European Urology, has collected all recently accepted papers on COVID-19 in this resource centre:
The EAU Robotic Urology Section (ERUS) has compiled some guidelines on how to deal with robotic surgery during COVID-19 Pandemic. Due to time constraints, a rigorous review process has not been possible. These guidelines are the results of the scientific evidence present and are to be seen as a consensus of taking into account that all should be done to safeguard healthcare workers and optimal treatment for the patients.
