Nurse Education

ABC UK launched our new Education Programme in September 2022 with a full day event for specialist urology and cancer nurses - a great success with almost 100 nurses attending, and this has followed with other events.  The feedback from nurses attending our events has been amazing, and helps us design our programme.  Education for health professionals is now a core programme of activity for ABC UK. 

This annual ABC UK programme of events, resources and networking includes the major annual ABC UK Nurses' Education Event held each September and a supporting programme of other learning opportunities.  

Please watch our website, and our social media, for further news for 2023 and 2024.

MAILING LIST:  If you are a health professional and would like to be added to our mailing list for education events, please email with your contact details, including hospital and your role.

2023 EVENTS 


Webinar Impact of Bladder Cancer on Sexuality 2023.jpg


Date: Monday 11 December 2023

Time: 6:30pm 

Understanding the Impact of Bladder Cancer on Sexuality

The webinar will be presented by Dr Angela Wright who is a GP, Menopause Specialist and Clinical Sexologist.  She has also specialised in Palliative Medicine and worked in hospice medicine for over a decade. She is particularly interested in improving sexual function and menopausal symptoms in women who have undergone cancer treatment.

We know problems with intimacy are the third commonest issue after cancer, but they are often the issues we talk about the least. This webinar will teach you how to use a biopsychosocial approach (a model of care that recognises social, psychological and environmental influences on health, as well as biological factors) to understand how bladder cancer can affect our patients' bodies, minds and relationships- and what we can do to support them. 

There will be time for you to put questions to Dr Angela Wright at the end of the webinar.
