BAUN and UKONS join forces with Janssen to deliver a masterclass for nurses looking after men with advanced prostate cancer

Many nurses working with men with advanced prostate cancer will come to the role with a urological or oncological nursing background.  However the role requires a hybrid of knowledge, skills and experience to successfully manage the effects of the disease and the treatments.  This unique one day course takes place on 12th September at The Robens Suite, Guys Hospital in London and will bring together these specialities to examine the support and care we offer our patients

The day starts with an overview of the ever-changing treatment pathway for men with advanced prostate cancer. UKONS and BAUN speakers will then discuss both the oncological and urological care of men including LUTS, ED, ADT side effects, oncological side effects and emergencies and the future of the management of this client group. We really look forward to the opportunity to update ourselves and learn from each other

We also have an interactive session form Inspire Change looking at techniques we can develop in engaging patients, managing treatment adherence and motivational interviewing

There are only 80 places so please sign up early to avoid disappointment

You can register by contacting Jo Cookson , Medical Education Manager from Janssen at jcookson@its.jnj.com


Nurses On-Line Resilience Gym Seminar

"Build your Inner Strength & Outer Power"

Monday, 12th September 2016, 6pm - 45 minutes webinar 

What is it? – A 45 minute live and virtual on-line seminar (Webinar) broadcast directly to your smart phone that aims to boost your wellbeing and your mental, physical, spiritual and emotional resilience (the ability to bounce back and cope under pressure and shock.)

Who is it aimed at? – NHS Nurses operating in a high pressure, low budget, old equipment environment and facing everyday challenges that most people would complain about.

It is for the s-heroes and heroes that Love the NHS, love their jobs and feel a calling to serve patients. And those that would love to love their immediate ENVIRONMENT and daily work MORE and be armed with better inner and outer RESOURCES to move up from just coping to THRIVING.

Where do I sign up? – To receive the live Gotowebinar broadcast on your phone please register with your basic details clicking on the link here –


To access the webinar on your phone simply down load the Gotomeeting app to your smart phone.

What will I get out of it? – Month after month, this light, fun and high energy “magazine” programme will give you self belief, language tools, negotiation skills and the assertive balance (upping both your positive personality and awesome potential power) to be more effective in communication, to get more of what you need and to not have to take some of the nonsense handed out to you.

What is it NOT? – A fix-all wonder pill that will give you all the answers in 45 minutes – like physical wellbeing it is a process and a journey that is enjoyable, enlightening and ends when you feel the way you wish to feel.

What are the benefits? – The show will provide you with the tools and self belief to own your VOICE, define your professional identity and be who you need to be to get the job done without succumbing to external bullying, abusive language or the manipulation of senior people taking full advantage of your good will and professional dedication.

 How will I know when I have developed my outer power? – When you can fully express your purpose and identity with presence, power and clarity and others sit up and listen and you feel centered, confident and motivated.

 Isn’t there always a catch and a cost? What will I have to let go of? You will be asked to give up your “victim” behaviours and your people pleasing language because people pleasers don’t please people. There is no financial cost to the programme just the time you invest in showing up.

 How long is the series?  - There will be 3 programmes before the BAUN conference in Liverpool in November 2016. If we get the engagement that is predicted we will then expand the resilience programme series with further broadcasts events and activities in 2017.

What is the content? In the show we will cover powerful and powerless language, the cost to you of your self-limiting beliefs and inherited scripts. We will learn a few difficult people profiles and gain strategies to both understand the motivation of these people and the tactics that we can employ to protect ourselves from the damaging aspects of their behaviours and to make progress via dialogue with them to derive a healthier understanding and agreement.

Remind me again – How do a start? Simply register with your basic details by clicking on this link and schedule the time in your diary to be available to receive the broadcast on your phone. (Don’t worry if you miss the live show – though we need you to be there if you can – a recording will be available afterwards.)


Why will it be on my phone? – Because your NHS computers are not new enough to receive the webinar!

Can I bring a friend? – Sure, simply forward this to any other Nurse who may benefit from building their inner strength and developing their outer power.

 See you…

A New Strategy for Cancer Services
Improving Care, Choice and Outcomes

Central London
Tuesday 17th January 2017

Event Details  Website  Register to Attend

With someone in England being told they have cancer every two minutes, and with half of people born since 1960 being diagnosed with cancer at some point during their lifetime, cancer services are under ever increasing pressure to deliver better services and outcomes. Despite the fact that more than half of people receiving a cancer diagnosis will now live ten years or more, something which suggests significant improvements, there remain definite barriers to be overcome.

In a recent report, the Independent Cancer Taskforce estimated that 30,000 lives can be saved each year by 2020 through earlier diagnosis and better treatment and care.

The report provided six strategic priorities to transform cancer services: spearhead a radical upgrade in prevention and public health;drive a national ambition to achieve earlier diagnosis; establish patient experience on par with clinical effectiveness and safety; transform our approach to support people living with and beyond cancer; make the necessary investments required to deliver a modern, high-quality service and ensure commissioning, provision and accountability processes are fit-for-purpose.

As part of the next steps in taking the strategy forward, Cancer Alliances, led by the Royal Marsden, the Christie, and University College London Hospitals, will be established in September this year. These Alliances will “test models that introduce more formal accountability for whole-pathway and whole population service planning and provision.” Alongside the creation of an integrated cancer dashboard designed to bring together data from across patient pathways into one, simple-to-use portal, these developments mark the next phase of implementation of this strategy.

Almost eighteen months on from the launch of Achieving World-Class Cancer Outcomes: A Strategy for England 2015-2020 and as implementation begins in earnest, this timely symposium offers an invaluable opportunity for NHS practitioners, local authorities, health visitors, voluntary organisations and other key stakeholders to assess the progress made in transforming cancer services to improve survival rates, match the highest standards in Europe and examine how to eradicate inequality in cancer care.

Delegates will:

  • Assess current progress on implementation of the National Strategy and examine its impact to date
  • Gain insights from Cancer Alliances and vanguard sites into the main issues associated with implementation of the strategy
  • Understand how to utilise information and digital technologies to improve patient care
  • Develop strategies to reduce variability of cancer services across the country
  • Hear from experts on the issues and challenges facing cancer services and share best practice with colleagues on improving service delivery and outcomes
  • Examine ways to work in partnership with organisations across the NHS, local and central government to deliver better outcomes
  • Debate how health professionals can be better supported and patients be more empowered to improve safety, quality and choice
  • Look towards the future in considering the next steps for cancer services across England

I am pleased to advise you that we offer a 20% early registration discount off the standard delegate rates for all bookings received by 9th December 2016. For further details about the symposium, please refer to the enclosed event brochure. Do feel free to circulate this information to relevant colleagues within your organisation.

International Continence Society (ICS) 2017, Florence, Italy: “Leading Continence Research and Education”


International Continence Society (ICS) 2017, Florence, Italy
“Leading Continence Research and Education”
12th-15th September 2017

Call for abstracts 01 March – 01 April 2017

After 14 years the ICS annual meeting is returning to Italy, and once again the ICS will be in Florence!

We are excited to host the most renowned international experts in the research and the treatment of pelvic organs and pelvic floor dysfunctions, with particular regard to incontinence. The meeting is multidisciplinary, bringing together all the professionals working in the field: nurses, midwives, urologists, gynaecologists, neurologists, physiotherapists, and basic scientists.

The 2017 Scientific Committee is planning sessions on the pathophysiology, diagnosis and treatment of incontinence and other dysfunctions of the pelvic organs and of the pelvic floor. Rehabilitation, medical and surgical treatments will be discussed as well as basic and translational research. The role of new technologies will also be explored. Specialised nursing sessions are also prepared.

The convention centre, Fortezza da Basso, has been recently renovated and is now one of the most modern and comfortable congress venues in Italy. The Fortezza is located within walking distance from the heart of the beautiful art city of Florence where you can lose yourself in the ancient Florentine streets full of arts, handicrafts, fashion and wonderful local cuisine! Take a trip among the colour and flavours of Italian history and tradition. The Mediterranean and Tuscan atmosphere will accompany the discovery of such unexpected beauties that only a city such as Florence can offer.

Florence has always been the centre of cultural exchanges; we believe it is the perfect city to host the ICS meeting!

We look forward to meeting you in Florence in September 2017!
