|Aims and Objectives|
The best management of OASIS is a multidisciplinary approach. This workshop will not only evaluate the most up-to-date evidence regarding the incidence, pathophysiology, clinical diagnosis, anorectal investigations, short term and long term bowel dysfunction and the conservative management following OASIS repair but will also provide guidance for evidence-based shared decision making regarding subsequent mode of delivery after OASIS. It is also an opportunity to raise awareness of bowel dysfunction in a society that predominantly focuses on urinary incontinence following birth trauma.
