CALL FOR ABSTRACTS FOR POSTER PRESENTATIONS

The Continence Foundation’s WA State Education & Activities Committee invites WA researchers to submit an abstract for presentation at the WA Education Day as a poster. Due to COVID-19 border closures in WA, researchers working in the continence sector have missed the opportunity to submit an abstract for the National Conference on Incontinence (NCOI 2022) to be held in October in Melbourne.

To ensure that WA researchers have a suitable forum to present their original research, an invitation is now extended to WA researchers (only) to submit their original research abstract and to discuss their work in person during the WA Education Day.
