USANZ Member Participation - CFA Education Days for State and Territory Advisory Committees
Bringing together health professionals in bladder, bowel and pelvic floor health, the Continence Foundation of Australia (CFA) hosts Education Days for State and Territory Advisory Committees (STAC) throughout September and October.
2023 STAC NSW Education Day
The 2023 NSW Education Day was held at the Dockside Convention Centre in Sydney on Friday 1 September. USANZ was pleased to hear that two of our Members, Audrey Wang and Vincent Tse, participated in the CFA program.
Audrey Wang was one of three speakers in a workshop on SNS/PTNS/TTNS, considering the following questions: how are they done, how do they work, and how effective are they? Throughout this workshop, there was an opportunity to volunteer for a live demonstration of PTNS. Vincent Tse presented in the afternoon 'Happy Hour' session on the topic Where do we go after the AUS?
Congratulations to you both on participating!
2023 STAC Victoria Education Day
The 2023 Victoria Education Day was held at the Amora Hotel Riverwalk Melbourne in Richmond on Friday 8 September 2023. Several USANZ Members were included in the program which we were also delighted to see!
In the first session of the day on Male Pelvic Health, Shan Morrison presented on the topic of What's new in male pelvic health from a physiotherapy perspective. Following this, Jos Jayarajan chaired the second session of the day on Neuromodulation. Johan Gani was also in this session chaired by Jos, presenting on Non-obstructive urinary retention and sacral neuromodulation: systematic review and predictive factors for success. In the afternoon Female (Pessary and Mesh) session, Jos Jayarajan presented on Female pelvic floor surgery in the post-mesh era.
