How we can manage common urological presentations

Tuesday, 3 July 2018. 7.30 - 8.45 pm

Dr Andrew Williams, a consultant urologist at Auckland and Counties Manukau District Health Boards will discuss how we can manage common urological presentations seen in primary care, focusing on the following:

  • PSA testing should be used to risk stratify men and is not a diagnostic test.
  • Who should be referred for further investigation for prostate cancer?
  • Prostate cancer is a widely varying disease with many different biological behaviours.
  • Men with urinary symptoms can be managed through a standard systematic approach.
  • Managing recurrent UTI’s with a standard simplified approach.
  • New options available for patients with recurrent UTI’s.

Throughout this live online event, you will have the opportunity to type questions to Andrew via the onscreen text system.

Please note that the webinar may run slightly over time so as many of your questions as possible are answered.
