The modern era of patient-centered, multidisciplinary professional practice comes with the expectation of effective interaction between specialties dealing with closely related clinical areas. Interaction between adult and pediatric urology is generally limited in terms of training, conferences, and joint diagnostic/treatment algorithms. However, in the more complex cases managed by pediatric urologists, long-term medical input is commonly necessary. Accordingly, regular interaction between the relevant specialties would be beneficial for continuity of care of individual patients, achieving best results at transition to adolescence, awareness of long-term outcome of pediatric urological procedures and development of new surgical techniques. This article reviews the discussions at the 2011 International Consultation on Incontinence Research Society meeting in Bristol. Neurourol. Urodynam. 31:384-385, 2012. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
