Watch the recordings of the webinar
“UROLOGY IN BELGIUM IN TIMES OF CORONA”
SBU, BVU & Scientific Summits

THURSDAY 2 APRIL 2020, from 18h30 – 20h00

Dear colleagues,

Due to the recent Covid-19 outbreak our job as medical expert is seriously impacted.  Legislation, priorities, agreements, working methods, … change constantly. Crisis management takes over the daily hospital practice.

Unfortunately, we are forced to postpone consultations of new oncology patients and oncological follow-ups. In addition, we also have to postpone oncological interventions, procedures, radiotherapy and medical treatments.

We would like to highlight the national and international guidelines in this regard. We also want to be able to offer alternatives for high-risk surgery or high-impact medical treatments. Can we bridge time with provisional treatment? Can we safely propose an alternative? …

Concerning these hot topics, SBU, BVU and Scientific Summits decided to collaborate in organising a joint online meeting.

The recordings of each speaker & the discussions of the webinar can be watched hereunder.
