This paper reports on the recent publication and wide distribution of a joint statement on minimum standards for urodynamic practice in the UK.


A multidisciplinary working party were tasked with creating standards for both training and certification in urodynamics, as well as explicit standards for a framework of service delivery. This was done through a process of extensive consultation with relevant professional bodies.


The standards suggest a modular structure to urodynamics training, and make recommendations on minimum workload for individuals and departments, the need for multidisciplinary team working and for regular audit.


This is the first attempt to standardise urodynamics practice nationally. The document is available on the United Kingdom Continence Society Neurourol. Urodynam. 29:1365–1372, 2010. © 2010 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
