Dear Colleague,

Each year BAUN work hard to provide a conference that not only educates but enthuses and entertains, and 2016 is set to deliver this and more.  

Matthew Hill, will open the conference with his session ‘surving to thriving’, Mathew is an Author, Trainer & Coach at Hill Networks Limited. Matthew will set the scene for the days ahead to make us think about how what we learn during conference can help us strive for excellence, not only for ourselves but others around us.  In among Mondays diverse programme, I know you will all welcome Jeffrey Albaugh back to conference to discuss penile rehabilitation after prostate cancer treatment. Jeffrey was a great hit with our audience in 2015 and we are sure he will keep you all entertained (as well as informed) during his session. Monday evening provides the opportunity for everyone to network, socialise and let their hair down at the BAUN Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony, the event will take place at the Rum Warehouse. Following a 3 course meal and award presentations, the band ‘The Crazy Apes’ will entertain you and get everyone up dancing.

As if Monday wasn’t action packed enough, Tuesday will provide you with a choice of two parallel programmes featuring benign and oncology topics. The benign programme features topics such as; female sexual dysfunction; urethral stricture management and stone disease. The oncology programme will provide up to date information and the latest advice on muscle invasive bladder cancer, “Living with and beyond cancer” and immunotherapy for renal cancer. These are just a few of the many topics on offer within the programme and I do not envy you in your choice of sessions as they all look exceptional.

Following Matthew’s theme of ‘surviving to thriving’, I encourage you all to submit an abstract to be considered as an oral presentation or poster display at conference.

You may believe that you have nothing to share, but any recent audit, research or service developments you or your team have undertaken will be relevant and interesting to your peers.

These are just a few of this years conference highlights and we promise you an action packed event. The full programme can be viewed via the programme tab on the left.

I look forward to welcoming you.
