Additionally, research or case studies related to Training and Entry into this Field of Medicine are welcome. A list of topics planned for this Conference is given below as a guide.

Colleagues are encouraged to submit abstracts of papers and posters which demonstrate the quality of work being carried out in the promotion of Continence.
