  • IUGA International Symposium
June 29-30, 2019
Croydon, UK

Dear Colleagues,

It will be my pleasure to welcome you to Croydon University Hospital on June 29 and 30, 2019 for the IUGA International Symposium on Birth Trauma and Pelvic Floor Health. Working closely with our Nursing and Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation Special Interest Groups, we have developed an educational and interesting program filled with information about pelvic floor dysfunction, birth trauma, nursing and physiotherapy management, pessary management, and ultrasound and advances in treatment. Over two days, the attendees will attend plenary sessions and lectures and participate in hands-on workshops.

The IUGA is dedicated to the global advancement of urogynecological knowledge and patient care through education and the promotion of basic and clinical research on disorders of the female pelvic floor. We recognize that urogynecology is a multi-disciplinary field that benefits from the expertise of primary care physicians, urologists, midwives, gynecologists, nurses, and allied health professionals, in addition to urogynecologists. This symposium will be targeted to physiotherapists, midwives, nurses, and other allied health professionals who play a crucial role in the treatment of pelvic floor disorders.

After participating in this symposium, attendees will have a clear understanding of:

  • The different options, modalities, and opportunities to treat pelvic floor disorders
  • The importance of a multi-disciplinary approach to the treatment of pelvic floor disorders
  • How and when to assess the possibility of and who is at risk for pelvic floor trauma
