The British Association of Day Surgery (BADS) and the Getting it Right First Time (GIRFT) team are developing a national programme to transform urology pathways such that patients are offered surgical management for a range of urological conditions in an environment which is as “low intensity” as possible. It is recognised that a number of units have high day case rates for procedures such as TURBT however, the variation across the country is significant.

National experts from GIRFT and BADS will share experience and advice about how to develop day case pathways for the large majority of urological surgery. This includes:

  • Management of bladder cancer (TURBT pathways)
  • Bladder outflow obstruction surgery – moving from TURP to daycase or outpatient procedures
  • Major laparoscopic surgery as day cases
  • Day case management of ureteric stones
  • Novel anaesthetic approaches to urological surgery
  • Pitfalls to approach and obstacles to overcome – how they did it

The conference will also describe how urology investigation units can support your service to move procedures traditionally undertaken in a hospital environment into a community setting by embracing new technology.

This conference will enable you to:

  • Network with colleagues who are working to improve day surgery urology services
  • Learn from outstanding practice in day surgery urology
  • Reflect on national developments and learning
  • Understand how you can improve your day surgery pathways
  • Identify key strategies for implementation of a day surgery urology service
  • Ensure you are up to date with the latest national practice
  • Self assess and reflect on your own practice
  • Gain CPD accreditation points contributing to professional development and revalidation evidence
