Canadian Urological Association Journal

Welcome to CUAJ - Canada's urology journal for urologists and related specialists!

CUAJ is a a peer-reviewed, open-access journal devoted to promoting the highest standard of urological patient care through the publication of timely, relevant, evidence-based research and advocacy information. 

 

 

 

 

This month, we feature a guest editorial that highlights the potential pitfalls of prioritizing cost-effectiveness in assessing medical technology at the exclusion of other considerations, as well as Health Quality Ontario’s response to this critique. 

Also available: A new CUA guideline on the care of the normal foreskin and neonatal circumcision in Canadian infants.

And this issue's CPD-accredited paper is a review of the recommendations for followup of stage I and II seminoma. Click here to answer the multiple-choice questionnaire and log into your Mainpro account to claim your Section 3 MOC credits.
