This course is free of charge for BAUN Members. 

This module aims to provide students with relevant and up-to-date knowledge to enable them to critically analyse current practice in this clinical speciality. This in turn will provide safe, effective and evidence-based care for patients with genitourinary cancers.

This module will address the treatment and care of patients with a diagnosis of prostate, bladder, renal and testicular cancers and consider the psychological and physical impact on management of these cancers including care of patients with a urinary stoma.

Prostate Cancer UK Summit 2015 – Rethinking the treatment pathway

08:45-17:45, Saturday 18 April 2015, Park Plaza Riverbank, London

This meeting is free of charge for BAUN members

The Prostate Cancer UK Summit is a one-day meeting designed to support health care professionals involved in managing prostate cancer to deliver ever-improved patient outcomes. This year’s meeting will focus on the latest data for interventions in the advanced disease setting to understand how practice could evolve to integrate these new options and improve outcomes for patients as a result. The 2015 Summit Steering Committee intends to put the health care professional at the heart of the meeting and to make it personally relevant to delegates. As such, the programme includes various breakout sessions from which delegates will be able to select those that they feel will provide the most relevant and important learnings for their daily practice.

This meeting is solely sponsored by Janssen. More information and meeting registration (free) on www.janssen-oncology.co.uk.
