The 28th National Conference on Incontinence (NCOI) in association with the UroGynaecological Society of Australasia (UGSA) will be held on the 13-16 November 2019 at the Pullman Melbourne Albert Park overlooking the picturesque Albert Park Lake.

With key international and national speakers including Dr John DeLancey from the USA, Professor Mandy Fader from the UK and Associate Professor Cristiano Gomes from Brazil, the national conference is a truly multidisciplinary event, appealing to nurses, physiotherapists, medical specialists, researchers, general practitioners, allied health and other health professionals, as well as industry seeking to showcase their products and services.

The conference will include a broad range of workshop themes and complimentary breakfast symposia, the four-day program promises to deliver an interesting and varied range of topics, reflecting the continued diversity in the field. Delegates will learn something new every day; we’ll give them hands on workshops and plenty of networking opportunities for them to mingle with their colleagues.
