“Spot-on” evidence-based nursing care – New research and developments

Dear EAUN members,

The growing evidence in urology nursing care is amazing!

With this column, the EAUN SIG Groups want to put the spotlight on recent publications in their field of interest. This month’s articles have been carefully
chosen because of the scientific value from PubMed and represent different methods and approaches in research and development in urological nursing care. We hope this new initiative will have your attention and continuously provide information on “spot-on” urological nursing care.

If you would like to inform us and your colleagues about new initiatives or exiting developments in one of the special interest fields you can contact us using the email addresses below.

Best regards
The SIG Chairs
