What is a Resource Centre - and why focus on Nocturia
A Resource Centre is a freely accessible platform, designed for healthcare professionals, that aims to increase clinical knowledge in a specific medical specialty by disseminating important new research and clinical developments more broadly. Resource Centres are all independently editorially controlled, provided in collaboration with established medical journals, hosted and managed by Elsevier, and funded by educational grants from societies and other organizations, such as medical or pharmaceutical companies.

Urologists are the primary specialist who will see patients with this problem and it is expected that they will play a major role in the further diagnosis and organization of treatment.
