Diagnostic and therapeutic protocols have developed in many diseases determining daily medical practice in our country as in others. Eighteen months ago, ISUD took the initiative to fill in the respective gap in Andrology. The official methodology that was adopted for this venture was the one used in all treatment protocols.

Initially, a protocol was assigned to each member of the working group. They were then asked to complete a review of the relevant literature and -taking into accounttheir personal experienceand the conditions of the national infrastructure- to propose a realisticdiagnostic and therapeutic algorithm. Last year the working group presented the outcome at Andrology Update 2019 in Thessaloniki where there was extensive discussion with their colleagues. All improvements and changes have been integrated in the finalalgorithms that have beenultimately presented in a special edition of ISUD.

Now the time has come for the clinical application of the protocols. In this year's Andrology Update, every member of the working group is presenting 2-3 casesfollowed by discussions on their diagnostic and therapeutic approach based on the new diagnosticsand therapeutic protocols.

At the same time there will be 4 working groups with the aim of practical training and acquisition of skills in basic practical areas of subspecialization. These working groups will take half the time of the event.

Once again I am inviting you all to embrace this highly significant scientific event and contribute with your active participation to its success, to the benefit of all fellow Urologists but mainly to the benefit of men having sexual or infertility problems.

What is Andrology update?

Andrology update is a Masterclass training course for Urologists that has been organized by ISUD for years. It is actually a continuation of the historical training courses in Human Sexuality and Andrology that were initiated by the Sexual and Reproductive Health Center (SRHC) in 2001. From 2001 until 2013, SRHC had organized 31 training courses with the overall participation of more than 500 Urologists and 1000 Physicians of other medical specialties. Since 2014, ISUD has undertaken the organization and the event was renamed as Andrology Update. Embraced by all Urologists, Andrology Update has become our annual training meeting point for all those who are eager to keep abreast of new trends and developments in Andrology.

Andrology Update is the most practical ‘hands-on’ Masterclass organized by ISUD, presenting a simulation of the Urologists’ clinic setting where colleagues have to cope with problems they are frequently faced with in their daily clinical practice. In this way, by combining evidence-based Medicine with the participants’ clinical experience, the trainees’ knowledge is renewed and upgraded. Various topics are developed through interactive educational/training procedures, providing food for thought and discussion. The ultimate goal is to offer solutions to patients’ problems and improve their quality of life.

What does Andrology Update include this year?

Andrology Update 2020 is dedicated to presenting selected cases and discussing diagnostic and therapeutic protocols for Andrology diseases. Once every case is presented, there follows a constructive dialogue for drawing conclusions and compiling the most appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic approach.
