BAUS has launched four groups of webinars, each with a different educational lead, to help meet education needs across the whole spectrum of BAUS membership.  These webinars are for healthcare professionals only.

Click on the "Buzzsprout®" logo (left) to listen to a 30-minute podcast, chaired by Tim O'Brien, President of BAUS, in which the educational leads for each group explain their aims

Brief details of each series, and a provisional list of scheduled webinars for each, can be seen by clicking on the appropriate dropdown header below.

Each webinar will last approximately 1 hour.  Attendees will be able to log into their account and view a recording after the event - we aim to upload recordings within 3 working days of the event.

The list of webinars will be updated as session dates are confirmed.  Follow us on LinkedIn and Twitter for details of new webinars as registrations become available. In the meantime, please "save the date" for those webinars you wish to attend.

1. Controversies in Urology (Educational lead: Sunjay Jain)

Introduction by Sunjay Jain, Consultant Urological Surgeon, St James's University Hospital, Leeds

Busy clinicians need access to the latest information to help with best management of their patients, but they often don't have much time to keep up-to-date. The controversies series aims to update topical subjects in an engaging way. A variety of formats will be used, including expert viewpoints, debates and case discussions. The priorities in planning this series have always been to cover areas that will appeal to all urologists, whatever setting they work in, and to ensure high-quality by inviting recognised leaders, both British and international, in their field."

17 May 2021 19:30 RESILIENCE, WELLBEING & TRAINING Contributors:
Roland Morley & Tim Terry
Research focusing on the mental wellbeing of surgeons, although increasing, remains fairly limited. Burnout has been  reported in up to 53 percent of surgeons. Psychiatric illnesses, such as anxiety, depression or substance abuse, although less widely investigated in the surgical workforce, have been reported in up to 30 per cent of established surgeons and this has been exacerbated by Covid-19. Interestingly, surgeons have been shown to be slow or reluctant to seek help, and as such, many suffer in silence.

This webinar looks at the evidence  , mechanisms to improve resilience and services to improve well being.

Manar Malki & Muddassar Hussain 
In this webinar we will discuss investigation of small renal mass (SRM). We will provide an overview of  management options of SRM including active surveillance, nephron-sparing surgery and ablative therapy. We will discuss a number of  real life cases and debate the management!

3. FY / CT Doctors (Educational Lead: Anna O'Riordan)

Introduction by Anna O'Riordan, Consultant Urological Surgeon, Freeman Hospital, Newcastle upon Tyne: 

This series of webinars is intended to support knowledge and comprehension for those at core training level. It is designed to complement the BAUS Core Urology Course, covering areas such as anatomy and pharmacology for urologists, as well as consolidating practice in other key areas (e.g. LUTS assessment). We expect that these educational sessions will build core trainee confidence in the day-to-day management of patients, as well as stimulating reflective practice & self-directed learning."

4. Innovations in Urology (Educational lead: Oliver Wiseman) 

Introduction by Oliver Wiseman, Consultant Urological Surgeon, Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge:

We are delighted to announce the launch of our BAUS, industry-sponsored, webinar series. The series aims to give companies a channel through which they can showcase their latest technology, techniques and products (or evidence related to them) directly with our members, especially where face to face education and congresses have been severely restricted. This, in turn, will allow our members to stay at the forefront of developments within our rapidly-changing speciality.

"There are numerous launches of new technologies that companies will be excited to share, together with new evidence relating to existing treatments. Sadly, with the COVID-19 pandemic, the normal fora for members to find out about these advances have not been available, so BAUS sees these webinars as a great way to compensate for this.

"We will be running one webinar each month, starting in September 2020. Some will be supported by an individual company, and will likely be related to a particular technology, therapy area or patient pathway. Others will be head-to-head, with the chance to look at different treatments and their place in the management of a particular condition, such as minimally invasive BPH treatments or laser technologies. We hope that BAUS members will see this as an exciting opportunity to stay up-to-date with advances in our speciality, and we look forward to your involvement & feedback."

 Jay Khastgir and Janet Eldekvist  
This webinar will explore how BPS patients can be taught ISC allowing them to manage their own treatment at home and in doing so free up clinic time for new patients on the waiting list to help clear the NHS backlog.  This can be a complex patient group and treatment can be long term so finding ways to create space for new patients is essential. We  will discuss the things to consider when selecting patients for ISC.  We will also look at types of bladder instillations and factors to consider when choosing which one to use.  A specialist nurse will talk through how straightforward it is to teach ISC and we will hear from a patient, there will be an opportunity to share practice and a Q and A.
