Following our most successful conference ever in 2014, we are delighted to announce our next conference "Right Time, Right Place, Right Care". The conference will showcase new research, highlight the impact of continence problems on the everyday lives of children and teenagers and discuss innovative approaches to managing them.

Conference highlights:

  • Opportunities to hear about new research in the field of childhood and adolescent continence;
  • Plenary talks given by leading professionals working in the field;
  • Break-out workshops;
  • A broad range of exhibitors;
  • Networking opportunities;

RCPCH has approved this activity for up to a maximum of 5 CPD credits, in accordance with the current RCPCH CPD Guidelines, and allocated as follows:
5 CPD Credits

Or

For nurses, the conference will provide participatory CPD activity hours – one of the requirements for revalidation.
