About the SIU Regional Meeting in Urological Care

Over the last 18 months, the travel and social distancing restrictions put in place to limit the spread of COVID-19 have had a dramatic impact on medical conferences and the way physicians and trainees fulfill their CME needs. Most major urological societies worldwide were forced to cancel their in-person conferences in 2020–2021 and move all meetings to a virtual-only format. While virtual conferences may have provided a more accessible and less costly alternative to in-person meetings, they lacked the critical human interaction component that is intrinsic of face-to-face events.

The purpose of the Regional Meetings in Urological Care is to provide an update on the management of common urological conditions based on current and emerging evidence and clinical practice guidelines. Over the course of three days, an international faculty composed of experts in different urological subspecialties and early-career urologists will discuss recent advances in surgical and minimally invasive interventions for the management of urological conditions in four different modules. The topics discussed in each module can be easily adapted in response to the educational needs of SIU members in the region where the meeting is held.

The first Regional Meeting in Urological Care is set to take place in Istanbul, Turkey, in June 2022. This meeting will feature modules on the management of urinary stones, prostate cancer, bladder cancer, and BPH.

    • Recall the management approach for complications associated with endourological and uro-oncological procedures for the treatment of benign and malignant urological conditions.
