Improving Continence Care in Older People 2020

Fri 11 September 2020
This meeting has applied for 5 credits of CPD accreditation from the Royal College of Physicians (RCP)
Bladder and bowel problems are common but neglected areas of Geriatric medicine practice. This virtual meeting will focus on providing comprehensive, up to date information and practical tips from leading experts in the field.

To adapt to the current world, BGS meetings to the end of 2020 will be delivered virtually.

This means the Improving Continence Care in Older People programme will change for effective online delivery while covering the same core topics such as Nocturia, Faecal incontinence, Neurogenic bowel and bladder issues resulting from spinal injuries and Dealing with incontinence in difficult behaviour settings. In addition to have access to 5 hours of live and recorded content, participants joining live will have the opportunity to engage with presenters, attendees and sponsors. This will be through interactive activities during the session as well as 1 to 1 and group calls and chat.

Registration fees are being reduced by 50%, and travel and accommodation costs will not be incurred.

We are finalising the programme details to ensure our participant’s effective engagement with the educational content, and between all attendees before, during and after the meeting.

Updates will follow on this page, on Twitter @GeriSoc #BGSConf and in BGS e-bulletin.

Participants are encouraged to register in advance to take advantage of the early bird discount.
