Research and Audit
Section audits and other research activity
The Section of Endourology has an Audit & Research Committee which meets two or three times a year, usually before meetings of the Executive Committee.
The Section’s Audit and Research Committee are keen to work with members who may be contemplating undertaking a survey or circulating a questionnaire to colleagues. We would be happy to review questionnaires with a view to offering constructive comments and advising if we are aware of similar work. The Section will only authorise circulation to Section members if they are convinced the project is of value. The aim of this policy is to prevent members from receiving multiple, poorly-constructed questionnaires. We hope that, if we can reassure members that a questionnaire has been scrutinised by our Committee, colleagues would consider replying to it rather than automatically deleting it.
Requests for help or advice can be sent to Ken Anson via e-mail.
The Section runs registries on nephrectomy and PCNL and in January 2011 launched audits of PUJ Obstruction and endoscopic treatment of UTTCC.
