The ICS meeting in Tokyo in September 2016 will be an exciting one for nurses and we encourage you to attend.
###ICS Nurses Forum - Wednesday 14th 14:30-17:30
The Nurses Forum will focus on advanced practice continence nursing with international speakers discussing how they implement the role in various settings. This session is free to all registered delegates.
###Nursing Focused Workshops
The Education Committee has plenty of workshops that will be of great interest to nursing colleagues.
Diane Newman is chairing a workshop on "Evidence Based and Urologic Applications of Urologic Catheters". This workshop will provide a comprehensive review of urologic catheters, their indications, use and complications. It will provide updated evidence based guidelines and include a “hands on” session. Catheter types as well as hospital acquired CAUTI will be reviewed.
The Nurses Committee has planned a workshop entitled "Nurses Leading Continence Care", co-chaired by Donna Bliss and Wakako Satoh. Assessment and management of UI in cognitively impaired older adults will be discussed with a focus on the role of prompted voiding. The prevention and management of postpartum UI / retention and the role of pelvic floor muscle training will be reviewed. Interpretation and application of urodynamics in nursing practice will also be covered by the speakers. Case presentations will promote audience participation. This workshop is free and will be translated into Japanese.
For nurses working in pelvic floor health there are many physiotherapy workshops which will be of interest to your practice as a nurse. Bary Berghmans will chair “From pelvic floor muscle training to functional training in women with urinary incontinence; bottom line solution for adherence?” Something, as nurses we continually strive for in our patients.

The ICS Childrens and Young Adults Committee have a very interesting workshops for those nurses working with children entitled “Transitional Care for Continence in Congenital Malformation: What to do and when.”
