  1. Which topics and sessions will you be addressing and participating in as part of the program? Assessment and surgical treatment for urinary incontinence.
  2. Why should these sessions not be missed? Urinary incontinence is common in older patients and has significant impact on quality of life. Furthermore there are an increasing number of men who undergo treatment for prostate cancer and urinary incontinence is a recognized complication of both surgery and radiotherapy. With advances in assessment and surgical treatment many patients with incontinence can be effectively treated.
