AUA2023 Patient Perspectives - AUA Annual Meeting


AUA2023 Patient Perspectives

AUA2023 – Attendee Info

Take Part in an Innovative Patient-Focused Initiative!

Now in its second year, the AUA Patient Perspectives program is designed to elevate awareness and bring patient voices into the fold. This engaging 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 Patients and Advocacy Groups

The Patient Perspectives program provides the opportunity for patients with urologic conditions to share their own treatment journey. Those selected to present their story will have the opportunity to connect with physicians at the world's largest medical meeting in urology.*

Patient advocacy groups are encouraged to share this opportunity with their members as well.

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 you and your healthcare team that other physicians and urology professionals should know more about

Submissions are due December 19, 2022.

*Travel stipends will be provided to primary authors accepted to present their Patient Perspectives story at AUA2023 in Chicago.
