This year’s British Association of Urological Nurses (BAUN) annual conference is being held on Monday 26th and Tuesday 27th November at the Bournemouth International Centre.
Registration is available on the conference website. Please visit: www.baun.co.uk/baun-conference/
BAUN are acutely aware of the new Medtech Europe Codes of Practice which are now in place and apply to all MedTech Europe Member Companies to maintain ethical interactions with Healthcare Professionals and Healthcare Organisations. This means that industry will no longer be able to provide direct funding to individuals.
BAUN acknowledges this and will be looking at further opportunities where we can, to support this transition. So don’t let this put you off attending the main urology event of the year as there are many other alternatives that can be explored.
- The most straight forward way is self-funding
- Check if your own NHS Trust has received funding via a specific Educational grant for the conference attendance
- If you have historically been funded by a specific company, be proactive and approach them yourself to see whether they have any educational grants on offer
As ever this year's conference programme is packed and varied to ensure there is something for everyone, making BAUN 2018 the must attend event for nurses and practitioners working in urology.
Pre-Conference Workshops and Advanced Andrology Study Day: On Sunday 25th November, we will once again be holding pre-conference workshops and an advance andrology study day. These will provide you with additional hands on experience and updates which will be essential for your CPD portfolio and for revalidation.
Pre-Conference workshops include Flexible Cystoscopy Workshop and Continence after Prostate Surgery.
Day 1: Highlights of the first day of conference includes Professor Dame Elizabeth Anionwu delivering the Eileen O’Hagan lecture – ‘Inspire and be inspired’, ‘Intravesical treatments for bladder cancer – What is the evidence?’, ‘New and innovative alternatives for bladder outflow obstruction – Rezum v Urolift’ and much more!
Day 2: On the second day of conference the programme will divide into subsections of oncology and benign urology with experts covering each area ensuring that there will be something on offer for everyone.
