about this event

Get a comprehensive update on controversial current topics in urogynaecology and obstetrics.

Through a host of lectures given by experts in the field of obstetrics and gynaecology, this meeting will focus on:

  • Management of OAB (overactive bladder) while assessing the advantages and disadvantages of the drugs available for this problem
  • The diagnostic criteria for urinary tract infection, understanding when to commence treatment and how best to treat patients diagnosed with an infection based on current evidence
  • Analysing when combined pelvic floor surgery is appropriate for patients with urinary incontinence and pelvic floor prolapse


Professor Cardozo, Consultant Gynaecologist at King's College Hospital, will also be chairing a debate between two trainees looking at the mode of delivery and its influence on the mother and foetus.

The meeting will be of interest to medical students and healthcare professionals working across all disciplines. Doctors in training and those working for their advanced training skills module in urogynaecology should also find this meeting of great value.

We are grateful to Allergan Ltd and Astellas Pharma Limited for supporting this meeting.
