Patient Perspective Program

AUA Launches New Patient Perspective Program at AUA2021

Introducing an Innovative Patient-Focused Initiative!

The AUA is proud to introduce a new Patient Perspectives Program at AUA2021 in Las Vegas. Designed to elevate awareness and bring patient voices into the fold, this pilot program aims to help physicians and healthcare providers understand what success looks like in patient-physician communication and shared decision making.

A Unique Opportunity for Patient Advocacy Groups

The Patient Perspectives Program provides the opportunity for advocacy groups and their members to share their own perspectives and research. Those selected to present their research will have the opportunity to connect with physicians at the world's largest medical meeting in urology.*

Topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • Interventions with exercise, diet, or lifestyle
  • Use of complementary therapy (not medication specific)
  • Enhanced communication to impact your patient care
  • Examples of engagement with the health professional team
  • Patient advocacy/research
  • The impact social media and/or support groups have made on your care or quality of life
  • Adaptations made by the patient and their healthcare team that other physicians and urology professionals should know more about

Submissions are now being accepted for this unique program.
