The Amsterdam Workshop will now take place as a virtual event on 30th November 2020. A collaboration between WFIPP and Bekkenbodem4All.

WFIPP and Bekkenbodem4All will organize a free webinar on Incontinence and Pelvic Problems: how to shorten the patient journey. This workshop was originally supposed to take place during the Amsterdam EAU congress in March, but had to be postponed due to Covid-19. The free webinar will now take place virtually on 30th  November 15.00 – 17.45. 

How to shorten the patient journey? –  this is the central question that will be answered in various ways. Healthcare professionals Michael van Balken, Urologist at Rijnstate Hospital in Arnhem, and Dr. Martijn Smits, Urologist at Maastricht UMC, will give an overview of new therapies and innovations. Patient experts will discuss with professionals about ways to shorten their patient journey, comparing the situation in the Netherlands with the UK. Other best practices will be shown: is it possible to reduce the patient journey for mesh victims? How can a theatre performance be used to reduce the patient journey for new patients? Finally, a novel all-inclusive digital platform on incontinence for both patients and professionals will be presented.

Dear Friends,

We are excited to announce ICS 2020 is going online!

We have decided to transform ICS 2020 into a fully online meeting for you to experience at home, while protecting the safety and well-being of all meeting participants. We will provide an outstanding programme of educational exchanges, scientific news and best practice updates. We will incorporate the aspects of ICS you enjoy the most.

For more information about the new ICS 2020 format, please click here.

Along with our work and everyday lives, the COVID-19 pandemic has also challenged our model of face-to-face meetings as authorities have continued to impose travel restrictions and physical distancing. We still believe in the importance of continence research and education. What we ask of you now is for your continued support and the time to make the required changes to our programme. As you know, the ICS is a registered Charity in the UK and the annual meeting is our main form of income, which enables us to achieve our charitable objectives.

Please continue your commitment to the ICS family by joining us online from 19 – 22 November!
