The Nocturia Resource Centre celebrating 5 years!

The Nocturia Resource Centre (NRC) was originally developed to provide physicians with a free source of ready-to-use clinical resources specifically addressing nocturia. The NRC was launched in February 2012 and during the last five years has expanded to include dedicated  Editors, Prof. Antonella Giannantoni and Prof. Philip Van Kerrebroeck, both urologists, and a highly professional team of Associate Editors: Prof. Donald Bliwise, neurologist and Prof. Karl-Erik Andersson, pharmacologist, together with a team of staff in Elsevier and the EAU.

During the last years, we have seen an increasing interest in the NRC – as testified to by our web statistics. Specifically, from February 2012 to July 2017 the NRC was used by nearly 60,000 physicians from 190  countries. Nearly 21,3% of the visitors came from tablet or smartphone, the device most often used by busy clinicians to access the internet. One of the most popular sections is our article section with 20% of all pageviews. Further good news comes in that many physicians havesubscribed to our e-alert, in order to stay connected to new content and developments.

The most popular article is “Nocturia in older men”. Every month the NRC provides not just free resources – but also curated summaries into the value of the clinical research offered in the form of Editor’s Comments. From epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis, new drugs, to comorbidities, this curation helps provide our readers with quick insights into the relevancy of each case.

As Editors, we are happy to see our efforts are making an impression and providing value to physicians globally. For new visitors, please browse through the Resource Centre and we hope you too find the nocturia information concise, helpful and insightful in helping improve patient care.


Professor Philip van Kerrebroeck on the Nocturia Resource Centre

Nocturia is a complex problem with a strong negative impact on quality of life and mobility. Interest in this topic has increased over the past years, and the Nocturia Resource Centre, which was launched three years ago and is updated regularly, provides information on this topic that is not readily available in other media.
