1 Scopus citations


The International Continence Society (ICS) is the largest international body of nurses, physical therapists, drug researchers, clinicians, gynecologists, urologists and other specialists united yearly to discuss the topic of incontinence. This year, over 2500 attendees from all over the world participated in the annual meeting held in Glasgow, Scotland. Several presentations deserve recognition, but we will focus on a few key issues, such as the latest information on the surgical treatment of stress urinary incontinence, a novel approach to patient's study participation in randomized controlled trials via internet recruitment, and ethical concerns related to disclosure and transparency, as these are keenly relevant topics in women's health.
