IAPO member, World Federation of Incontinence Patients (WFIP) is delighted to announce that this year they will celebrate the first ever multistakeholder WFIP FORUM in Europe. It will be held in Barcelona, at the Hospital San Pau. WFIP is expecting a participation of some 100delegates, this on a first come first served basis. Participants will include WFIP delegate members, HCPs, invited guests, sponsors and other stakeholders.
This showcase event has been inspired by a compelling wish by the WFIP Board to raise awareness of issues such as incontinence, bladder weakness, pelvic pain and related conditions. The date of the Forum has been carefully selected to precede World Continence Week 2019 which will be from 17th to 23rd June 2019.
It will provide excellent networking opportunities for patient organizations, irrespective of whether or not they are WFIP members, and professionals to meet other patient advocates from around the world. It is also an opportunity to hear state of the art presentations on incontinence and chronic pelvic pain issues. WFIP will also present itself as a federation of national patient organizations and will highlight recent and upcoming activities. This forum will be a prime opportunity in a prime location to exchange views with clinicians, pelvic floor therapists, patient representatives and industry. It will be an opportunity to ask questions, contribute actively to the debates and understand just what WFIP is aiming to achieve.
