The 2011 ICS/CPC Public Forum will be held on Friday 2 September at the SECC conference centre in Glasgow. A welcome reception with drinks and a light buffet will be held from 18.00-19.00 accompanied by a small consumer-oriented exhibition. The presentations will be held from 19.00-21.00. The Public Forum is a joint venture between the ICS Continence Promotion Committee (CPC) and local patient and professional organisations in the host country. This year the Public Forum will be chaired by the UK Bladder & Bowel Foundation. The Public Forum is a way of focusing the attention of the general public and international medical community on the reality of life for people with urinary, bowel and pelvic floor disorders. It is open to the general public, caregivers and healthcare professionals and provides the perfect opportunity for the ICS and CPC to raise awareness of all aspects of bladder/bowel incontinence and pelvic floor disorders and to discuss issues of relevance to continence promotion.
The Public Forum is a free event open to 250 participants of the general public, including caregivers and healthcare professionals.
