The EAU22 Patient Day will bring further awareness to the patient’s perspective. In line with our mission “to raise the level of urological care in Europe”, we have put together a programme full of interesting sessions on various topics, with the support of our EAU Patient Advocacy Group (EPAG).

There will be three sessions dedicated to specific urological cancers on Patient Day:

  • Led by the World Bladder Cancer Patient Coalition (WBCPC), the bladder cancer session aims to explore ways to create and maintain meaningful patient-physician relationships and support networks.
  • The kidney cancer session, led by the International Kidney Cancer Coalition (IKCC), intends to discuss how communication between health care practitioners (HCPs) and cancer patients can be improved through shared decision-making.
  • Europa Uomo will lead the prostate cancer session with the primary goal of improving the quality of life of prostate cancer patients through awareness and empowerment.

There is also a session on functional urology, led by the World Federation for Incontinence and Pelvic Problems (WFIPP), where sustainable continence care, living with incontinence, and reaching out to patients who lack digital and literacy skills, will be discussed.

Finally, there will be two roundtable discussions.

  • The Roundtable: Incontinence is a collaboration with WFIPP and revolves around promoting awareness on incontinence, it’s management, and future innovations.
  • The Roundtable: Fatigue in prostate cancer patients will provide a venue for HCPs, patient advocates, and most especially patients and their caregivers, to discuss and understand fatigue in prostate cancer patients, and how this can be better managed.

To make this day as inclusive and wide-ranging as possible, urologists and HCPs are invited to join Patient Day and take advantage of the opportunity to listen to the patients and learn from what they have to share.

What better way to improve health service delivery than by hearing the patients perspective, being aware of their concerns, and being enlightened of their goals and daily experiences.
