The EAU Patient Information Working Group is most grateful for the reviewers’ time and diligence in providing complete and extensive reviews of EAU Patient information.
- Reviewers who focussed on the accuracy of content were identified based on their expert knowledge within the urological field.
- Reviewers who focussed on the use of lay language and level of understanding were identified based on their role within the healthcare team. The nurse-patient relationship enables nurses to spend more time, to connect, to interact with their patients as well as to understand their patient’s needs. Effective verbal and nonverbal communication is an important part of the nurse-patient interaction.
- Edits in lay language deriving from the review will be incorporated in the course of 2018.
- Whenever possible, feedback from lay reviewers has been sought.
