Introduction
A summary of the intermittent catheterisation guidelines
 S. Vahr Lauridsen, Copenhagen (DK)
Aims and objectives of this presentation

Implementation of clinical guidelines is still a major challenge. To make knowledge from EAUN Guidelines easier to use, an edited summary of the 2013 EAUN Guideline "Catheterisation urethral intermittent in adults" has been published. In this session you will get an introduction to the evidence behind the intermittent catheterisation procedure performed by a health care professional. A short overview of new evidence regarding the procedure and patient-related perceptions of intermittent catheterisation published after the release of the 2013 guidelines will also be presented.
