The EAU represents the leading authority within Europe on urological practice, research and education. Over 18,000 medical professionals have joined its ranks and contribute to our mission: To raise the level of urological care throughout Europe and beyond. As an organization, the EAU offers an extensive package of products and services relating to science, education and publications (scientific journals, Guidelines) to their members. We organise several meetings and congresses during the year. The EAU is based in Arnhem, The Netherlands, and employs around 80 enthusiastic, international professionals.
The production of clinical guidelines is an integral part of the ongoing EAU educational efforts. Clinical guidelines summarise the best evidence available at the time of their publication aiming to assist clinicians in making informed decisions about their patients. Multi-disciplinary panels of experts – currently 20 different panels – produce these documents under the supervision of a Board of experts. This ongoing process results in a number of different supplementary publications (scientific papers, short-reference documents and online applications, amongst others).
