urologist , Gynecologist, surgeon, nurse, urotherapist, pediatric urologist and surgeon
Spina bifida, bladder exstrophy/epispadia, posterior urethral valves are managed immediately after the birth with a surgical procedure. All these patients require lifelong urological care for the treatment of continence and there are critical aspects to define:

- Correct management in childhood to avoid procedure that impair adult life aspects as fertility and pregnancy
- transition out of childhood: who should manage the mature pediatric urology patients?
- Lack of knowledge in pediatric and adult health care professionals about adult life problems and congenital pathologies respectively.

The objective of this workshop is to critically evaluate the treatment in childhood to ameliorate the treatment of continence lifelong.
