Session

Primary care challenges in urology

Thematic Session 11

  • Location:
    Room 5
  • Chair:
     J.T. Marley, Newtownabbey (GB)
  • Aims and objectives of this session

    The aim of this session is to explore some of the obvious and hidden challenges in providing the often desired but seldom achieved ‘seamless transition’ from hospital to home for people with urological care needs. Through presentations from two eminent practitioners and via discussion with the audience we will meet the objectives of identifying unmet needs in both our patients and ourselves as the curators and providers of care. Through examining our own practice in the light of evidence we will be able to consider where and how our own practice needs to change and what might assist it to do so.

  • Panel:
     I. Banks, Spa (IE)
     M. Kirby, Baldock (GB)
