Dear Colleague,

 The BAUN Annual Conference 2018 is set to be another exceptional educational event.

 There is a range of high quality speakers that will inspire, educate and challenge us all to learn. The success of the 2017 conference and the feedback from delegates has allowed us to provide a programme which will ensure an exciting, stimulating and educational development opportunity.

 On Monday our conference will open with an inspiring session from Dame Elizabeth Anionwu who we are thrilled can attend. She will present the Eileen O’Hagan lecture and set the scene for our theme of “Inspire and be inspired”.

 In June 2018 the first comprehensive review of urological NHS services ‘Getting it right first time’ GIRFT national report was published. Clinical Lead for the programme Simon Harrison will be sharing an insight into this important work and the subsequent recommendations for urological nursing.

 The GIRFT report highlights that key to the development of the urological workforce will be establishing an outline urological nursing educational curriculum, which would allow greater insight into the complexity of urology nursing roles and the preparation needed to adopt them. I am delighted that Jerome Marley (Past BAUN President) as promised, will present the results of the BAUN World Café Urological Nursing Curriculum’ which was an interactive study involving many of you participating at last years’ annual conference. I know you felt inspired then and hope you will continue to be, hearing this important emergent research.

 Monday evening provides the opportunity for everyone to network, socialise and let their hair down at the BAUN Annual Awards Dinner; the event will take place at The Ballroom within The Pavilion, a beautiful look into Bournemouth’s art deco history.Following a three-course meal and the opportunity to celebrate success with the presentation of the annual awards, you will be entertained and finally will get the opportunity to dance the night away.

 Tuesday will again split into benign and oncology streams and, listening to your feedback, have included more sessions focused on bladder cancer and the impact on patients. Consultant Urologist Mr Hugh Mostafid will be speaking on research supporting intravesical treatments and will also lead an MDT session later in the day.

On the benign stream, there will be a session on new and innovative treatments for BPH by Mr Richard Hindley and Catherine Owen will be sharing her story on setting up a nurse led shockwave lithotripsy service.

 These are just a few of this year’s conference highlights and I promise you an action packed event. The full programme is available on the registration website.

 I look forward to welcoming you.


Julia Taylor
