Join us in our mission to improve Pelvic Organ Prolapse treatment and related patient care in urogynecology by participating in the IUGA International Urogynecological Consultation (IUC).
We are looking for committee members to contribute to the IUC, which will produce papers to be published in the IUJ covering definitions, treatment options and evaluation of patients who suffer from Pelvic Organ Prolapse.
The first subject area of the IUC is focused on the epidemiology/pathophysiology/definition of POP and will be covered by five committees:
- Epidemiology of POP: Incidence/Prevalence, Natural History.
- Pathophysiology of POP: Risk Factors, Family History, Genetic Mutations
- Clinical definition of POP
- Patients perception of disease burden of POP
- Relationship of POP and associated morbidities/pelvic floor dysfunction (urinary incontinence/ voiding dysfunction, fecal incontinence, sexual dysfunction and pelvic pain)
Committee members will serve a three-year term. Committee members will be chosen by the Chair of the respective committee with input from the IUC Steering Committee.
