About the course
The Certificate in Urodynamics course fulfils part of the requirements for completion of urodynamic training programme recognised by the International Continence Society. Course attendees will receive a Certificate of Attendance if they attend the whole course. The Certificate can also be used for CME/CPD credits (if applicable). It is mandatory that delegates attend the whole course in order to receive a Certificate of Attendance.
- Doctors, nurses, technicians and anyone allied to urodynamics who have some urodynamic experience.
- This course is not suitable for those who have no urodynamic knowledge.
Appreciation of the philosophy behind urodynamic studies (UDS) as part of patient investigation
Knowledge of the basic physical principles behind the measurement of flow and pressure
Knowledge of the role of UDS in investigating children, women, men and neurological patients
Ability to recognise artefacts seen during UDS, and the knowledge of how to correct them
Ability to interpret urodynamic traces
Knowledge of the techniques of basic and specialist urodynamics, including urethral function and video-UDS
At the end of the course there is an optional multiple choice quiz and we encourage all attendees to undertake this. If a delegate passes the quiz then they will get a Certificate of Passing – the pass mark for the quiz is 80%. If a delegate does not pass the quiz then they will have an option to retake the course within a year, but not earlier than three months, at any of the other BUI Certificate in Urodynamics courses held throughout the year and paying half the course fee.
Passing the quiz is seen as a distinctive measure of quality and reflects the high standards maintained during the course in teaching and establishing Good Urodynamics Practice and is regarded as the first step in gaining competency in urodynamics. Course attendance and passing the quiz is not enough to confer competence so additional training support will need to be provided by regular attendance at urodynamic clinics and competency assessment both informally at these clinics and formally with directly observed procedures and case-based discussions.
