IN COLLABORATION WITH the Chinese Continence Society, the ICS contributed to an educational course held in Chongqing, China from 26-28 September 2008. This was the second visit by the ICS to China following the 2006 education course held in Beijing. The Chongqing course was organised by the Chinese Continence Society, with the ICS sending four speakers who presented a series of lectures to a young and mainly Chinese audience. The course was held over two days with the ICS speakers leading an English-language first day before handing over to the Chinese experts for a Chinese-language second day.
Presentations by the ICS speakers included: new developments in urethral measurement by Gunnar Lose, LUTS in men by Philip Van Kerrebroeck, neuromodulation by Jerzy Gajewski and good urodynamic practice by Werner Schaefer.
The course ran successfully and was another excellent opportunity for the ICS to get to know its Chinese counterparts better. The ICS hopes to continue to develop its good relations with China and looks forward to providing and contributing to future events there.
