This new course reviews evaluation and management of the most common problems associated with congenital neuropathic bladder in periadolescent and adult life. Presented by the AUA in partnership with Society of Genitourinary Reconstructive Surgeons (GURS), Societies for Pediatric Urology (SPU) and Society of Urodynamics, Female Pelvic Medicine and Urogenital Reconstruction (SUFU), this one-day course will take place on Thursday, May 14, 2020, one day prior to the AUA Annual Meeting.
Advances in pediatric urologic care over the past 4 decades have resulted in the majority of children with congenital urological diseases entering adulthood with a high expectation for quality of life. Adult urological providers often find themselves ill-equipped to understand the prior interventions and risks that these patients face and patients enter adult-care environments poorly equipped to navigate a system of care that is fragmented and complex. The promise of excellent care provided for these patients in pediatric life is often not delivered in adult life, and this is a failure of our specialty as urologists and our collective covenant to our patients. Many in the field recognize this failure, yet they are spread across multiple societies and bring different expertise and perspectives to the table. To address this need, this course brings together the unique perspectives and expertise each society brings to this patient population.
Join us starting at 10 a.m. for a non-CME optional session which will focus on articulating specific advocacy needs for CMS/administrative bodies as well as highly important pending legislative issues. This non-CME optional session is for patient advocates and providers caring for patients with congenital urologic anomalies and interested in contributing to advocacy efforts for this patient population. Attendance is not mandatory for this segment and not CME approved.
