ESSIC 2020 MASTERCLASS
You are cordially invited to participate in the first stand alone masterclass of the International Society for the study of Bladder Pain Syndrome.
During 2 days top level teachers will take you through the actual knowledge of this puzzling and devastating disease. By the end of the course you will go home with a clear image of when to suspect BPS/IC, how to properly diagnose it, including typology, and the best existing ways for treatment. Social aspects, patient’s perspective and psychological consequences will be discussed. Throughout the course there will be ample time to ask questions and advice. The last day will be small groups discussions to involve everyone in a proactive way. Take this opportunity and join us. The number of participants is restricted
