Usage and republication


The content of the European Association of Urology Nurses (EAUN) Guidelines and all products derived from such material is made available for personal and educational use only. No commercial usage is authorised. No part of the EAUN Guidelines and any related products may be translated or reproduced in any form without written permission from the EAUN.

The EAUN Guidelines material can be: viewed, printed or downloaded for individual use (1 copy per person) and linked to from external websites or online media.

The EAUN does not allow for the insertion of their Guidelines and any other material based on these texts (full or partial) in external websites, pages, portals or servers, unless specific exceptional permission has been granted for such.

Translation and republication requests

The EAUN welcomes requests from national urological (nursing) societies to translate and reprint their guidelines and related material. For this purpose a written request is to be sent to the EAUN Office, Ms. Hanneke Lurvink, email: eaun(at) You will be asked to fill out a Translation Record Form.

Copyright will be transferred, for once-only translation and republication of the text in case these are made available to the members free of charge. Permission will, however, also rely on the explicit condition that no commercial involvement can be linked to such a reprint. Funding such a republication through the inclusion of commercial advertisement or financial support otherwise generated through a commercial third party (industry, publishing house etc.) is not allowed.

Any commercial involvement linked to EAUN guidelines republication will result in withholding permission.

Furthermore, the EAUN will not assume any responsibility for the correctness of the translations which are the sole responsibility of the national society in question. Proper reference to the source material is to be ensured, also in case guidelines texts, or their derivative products, are adapted to specific requirements related to medical practices and the national healthcare system of the country in question.

By transferring copyright for such a translation and republication the EAUN will not accept any financial claims related to the work involved.

Commercial reprints

The EAUN offers companies that have supported the guidelines development with an education grant the opportunity to order reprints or translations of original material.  In that case logistics and printing will be handled by the EAUN office. Please note that this may prove costly in case of a small print-run.
