The ESIU/EAU welcome you to the first clinical study on UROWEB (developed by Trentt). Urology departments from all over the world are invited to join the Global Prevalence Study on Infections in Urology (GPIU-study) and the GPIU Prostate Biopsy Side Study.
The GPIU study is taking part annually in November since 2003. European urologists were the first group of specialist to register hospital acquired infections on an international level. More than 20.000 patients are currently listed in this database.

The ability to treat infections is a prerequisite for modern urological surgery. In order to tailor effective antimicrobial prophylaxis and treatment we must know the identity and sensitivity of pathogens causing urinary tract infections (UTI) and surgical site infections (SSI).

Nosocomial infections have become an important quality parameter in urology and a legal issue for hospital health care.

Prostate biopsy is an extremely valuable and frequently performed diagnostic procedure in urology. Infective complications following prostate biopsy are increasing in number and severity in many countries. In order to keep prostate biopsy a safe procedure, we need to understand risk factors causing infective complications.

The GPIU-study is a combined quality improvement initiative and a scientific study. Once you have filled in the report forms you will get access to statistics showing the accumulated results for all participating hospitals. Here you can compare your own results with hospitals from all over the World. The GPIU-study application has been designed as an instrument to follow the development of important factors related to infection for several years, on international, national and local levels.

Sign in and choose the "study" menu. Press "Study report froms" und you will find four distinct menus, the "hospital questionaire", the "patient questionaire", the "control patients' questionaire" and the two "GPIU prostate biopsy side study questionaires". Fill in the "Hospital report form" and press the "send" button. Within a few seconds you will gain access to the patient report forms for patients having UTI/SSI, the control patients and the patients with prostate biopsies in the "Study Report Forms" menu. You can fill them in and send them when ready. You can also store an unfinished patient form and complete your work later. After all hospitals have filled in all patient forms, the study statistics become available.
