Involving everyone in Urology


Conference & Exhibition

Edinburgh International Conference Centre: 3-5 November 2008

Delegate Application Form and Information

Who should attend?

Everyone involved in urology nursing, new and experienced, looking to learn and improve their knowledge in the field of urology should

attend this conference.

Dear Colleague

For this year’s BAUN conference we return to Edinburgh, the most popular conference destination in the UK. Just as this great city

has much to offer visitors, we have a full and varied conference programme that will provide delegates with a stimulating and rewarding

visit to the 2008 BAUN Annual Conference and Exhibition.

Highlights of the conference will be:

Opening speaker: Allison Leary: Making Nursing Visible.

Keynote lecture: Jeff Albaugh ‘Tales From The Bedside’: An American Perspective on Urology Nursing

Debate: ‘This house believes that competency based nursing points to the death of nursing as a profession’

Eileen O`Hagan Lecture: Rosemary Kennedy, Chief Nursing Officer, Wales

We will have a large exhibition showing the latest developments in urological products, technology and services. This is always a focal

point of our meeting and I would urge you to make sure you benefit from the information, experience and expertise available from our

commercial colleagues.

The social programme looks like it will top any that we have put on before. It starts on Sunday the 2nd of November with tours of

Edinburgh, which will take in the historical sites, some local history and (of course!) the excellent shopping. Every evening we will have

a different event and the meeting will culminate with the Gala dinner at The Hub, a spectacular venue at the top of the Royal Mile, just

below the famous and spectacular Edinburgh Castle.

I look forward to seeing you in Edinburgh.

Best wishes

Tom Ladds

BAUN President

P.S. Don’t forget the call for papers. We have included a session on the first day for short paper presentations. Details can be found

within this application form.
