MONDAY 25th OCTOBER - WORKSHOPS

TUESDAY 26th & WEDNESDAY 27th OCTOBER - CONFERENCE AND EXHIBITION 

Welcome

As BAUN President and on behalf of the BAUN Trustees, we look forward to welcoming you to The BAUN Annual Conference 2021 which is set to be an exceptional educational event.

Registration is now open for BAUN Conference 2021, October 26th & 27th, ICC, Edinburgh.

If there was ever a year to celebrate coming together to celebrate the achievements of urological nursing, then this is certainly the year. We have given our all to support our patients, our services and each other over the past 12 months and now we face the challenge of recovery from COVID. I appreciate this is a busy time for you and your teams but we absolutely deserve the opportunity from Conference to access information, education and support in order to reflect and move forward and explore new diverse roles and ways of working and the vision of urological services in the future and our contribution to this.

I would encourage you and your teams to start thinking about how you can be part of BAUN Conference 2021, whether this is joining us to celebrate, showcasing your hard work over the past 12 months by submitting an abstract for poster or oral presentation or applying for an award to gain recognition for your achievements. I hope your Trusts recognise your contribution and value and that industry can also support you to attend in person.

Conference details and criteria for abstract and award submission are available on the website.

We did not achieve our 25th anniversary celebration last year and although our virtual conference 2020 was a huge success, all of the BAUN Trustees and Fitwise have been working hard to deliver a fantastic face to face event to you celebrating our theme of ‘Diversity in Urological Nursing’ in the beautiful city of Edinburgh, with a virtual catch up function for those unable to attend in person.

We have listened to your feedback from last year’s conference and have put together an exciting programme to meet your needs with many inspiring speakers to deliver these stimulating and thought-provoking topics. See full conference programme for details.

On behalf of BAUN I look forward to seeing you in Edinburgh to celebrate.

BAUN President
