Here are the 4 simple reasons why you need to attend the ICS regional course in Phoenix:
The course content is 100% relevant to clinicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners who work in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery.
Close interaction with an outstanding faculty, including some of the leading minds and surgeons in the field.
Great value for money. This is a comprehensive 2 day course on incontinence management starting from just $175.
The course content provides detailed information on urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, neurogenic bladder, pain, feacal incontinence and nocturia.
As this course is aimed at all areas of incontinence why not bring your whole team. This will benefit everyone in your department and help give you the information you need to give your patients the best possible care.
By the end of the course you will be able to:
- Efficiently evaluate an incontinent woman including and accurate pelvic floor exam for anatomy and function and simple bedside stress testing.
- Effectively employ conservative measures—behavioural, pharmacological, and devices—in treatment of female urinary incontinence.
- Counsel “index” stress incontinent women for surgical treatment with bulking agents, mesh slings, and fascial slings.
- Describe the “third tier” treatment options for refractory OAB with the pros and cons of each.
- Manage the evaluation and treatment of patients with lower urinary tract trauma.
- Identify nocturia as a symptom not a disease. Calculate NPI and perform basic classification of nocturia to provide relevant treatment or referral.
- Identify common phenotypes of Interstitial Cystitis/Bladder Pain Syndrome so as to provide effective, individualised care.
- Increase identification of faecal incontinence, provide relevant basic evaluation and treatment.
- Identify common indications for advanced urodynamic investigations and follow good urodynamic practices in performing such studies.
- Compare and contrast the types of lower urinary tract disorders associated with the most common neurological diseases.
- Identify patients with “safe” neurogenic bladders who may be managed symptomatically vs. those who require active follow-up and more aggressive intervention.
- Apply knowledge of pelvic floor anatomy and function in the operating room to produce better patient outcomes.
- Identify tangible knowledge that was gained from reports and trials during the mesh era to provide clear counselling and quality treatment for prolapse patients.
- Identify and manage common important urethral pathologies—caruncles, cysts, diverticuli and strictures.
