BAUN Annual Conference, Harrogate International Centre
4th - 5th November 2013
The British Association of Urological Nurses would like to invite you to attend their annual conference being held at the Harrogate International Centre on the 4th and 5th November 2013.
We are delighted once again to offer delegates pre-conference workshops focusing on Urodynamics, Flexible Cystocopy and TRUS Biopsy on Sunday 3rd November 2013. The aim of these workshops is to provide specialist nurses with theory and practical experience. These workshops were very popular last year and they were highly evaluated so early registration is recommended.
BAUN 2013 has a fantastic and varied programme on offer, featuring a host of international experts including Carrington Mason with a session on ‘both sides of the knife’. In addition we have two sessions from Professor Mark Emberton, one of which is 'Targeted HiFu the results so far'. We also have an MDT - Intermittent Hormones Debate with Dr Heather Payne and Dr Paula Wells. On the second day of conference, the programme divides into subsections of oncology and benign urology. With expert speakers covering each area, there will be something on offer for everyone. If you are working in either of these areas, or would like to find out more about them, this day will be the one to attend if funding doesn’t cover the whole event.
The full programme is listed online and can be viewed by clicking on the link below.
Have you ever wondered about doing a poster? This could be your year. If you have an area of new or innovative practice, an audit or review, why not put together a poster or free paper. Share areas of good practice and let us learn from one another to improve the care we give to our patients. Full details are available by clicking on the link below.
Don’t forget that the closing date is Monday 26th August 2013. For the full programme, to submit an abstract and to book visit: www.eventsforce.net/baunconf2013
