Society of Urologic Nurses and Associates hosts conference


In November, more than 400 urologic healthcare professionals convened in Washington, D.C., for the 43rd annual Conference of the Society of Urologic Nurses and Associates.

Participants attended courses on topics such as incontinence, pelvic and bladder pain, testicular cancer in children and robotic surgeries.

For the third year, attendees said the hands-on advance practice workshop was one of their most popular sessions, according to a news release. The interactive workshop allowed attendees to rotate among multiple stations including pelvic floor rehab and myofascial release, male and female genital exam, pessaries and penile injections for erectile dysfunction and treating priapism.

“One of the things that makes the SUNA annual conference so special is that attendees have the opportunity to personalize their education by choosing sessions of any level,” SUNA President Debbie Hensley, RN, BSN, CURN, said in the release. “Attendees leave with new personal and professional knowledge and connections.”

On Nov. 3, Jan Towers, RN, PhD, NP-C, CRNP, FAANP, FAAN, presented her keynote address, “Hot Topics for Nurses in the Current Health Care Environment.” Towers’ presentation discussed the latest happenings on Capitol Hill.

Audio recordings of education sessions and accompanying materials are available indefinitely in the SUNA online library.
