WFIPP and B4A on-line Workshop Incontinence – The Netherlands

30th November 2020 @ 3:00 am 5:45 pm

WFIPP and Bekkenbodem4All are organizing a on-line workshop (free of charge) on Incontinence and Pelvic Problems. This workshop was originally supposed to take place during the Amsterdam EAU congress in March, but had to be postponed due to Covid-19. The workshop will now take place virtually on 30th November 15.00 – 17.45.

‘How to shorten the patient journey? – this is the central question that will be answered in various ways. Healthcare professionals Michael van Balken, Urologist at Rijnstate Hospital in Arnhem, and Dr. Martijn Smits, Urologist at Maastricht UMC, will give an overview of new therapies and innovations.

Patient experts will discuss with professionals about ways to shorten their patient journey, comparing the situation in the Netherlands with the UK. Other best practices will be shown: is it possible to reduce the patient journey for mesh victims? How can a theatre performance be used to reduce the patient journey for new patients? Finally, a novel all-inclusive digital platform on incontinence for both patients and professionals will be presented.
