The Nocturia Resource Centre celebrating 3 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 three 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 December 2014 the NRC was used by nearly 30,000 physicians from 171 countries. Nearly 25% 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 curated Guidelines resource. Further good news comes in that many have subscribed to our e-alert, in order to stay connected to new content and developments.
Interestingly, the most popular article is “The Effect of Nocturia on Sleep”, by Sonia Ancoli-Israel, Donald L. Bliwise, and Jens Peter Nørgaard. 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.
