Donna Thompson MSN, CRNP, FNP-BC, CCCN-AP, Nurse Practitioner, Division of Urogynecology, University of Pennsylvania Health System represented WOCN at the AUA/UCF Bladder Health Alliance Roundtable meeting in Washington, DC in early October. The meeting is held annually in an effort to promote bladder health advocacy.
The meeting was attended by more than 25 patient, physician, and research advocacy organizations to discuss bladder health issues including new bladder health research programs taking place at the National Institutes of Health; and how to collaboratively promote policies that reduce the stigma associated with bladder health conditions. Further discussions focused on how advocates can become engaged with the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) to promote patient centered approaches to improve bladder health.
