June 2020 Report from Collège des médecins du Québec

As a point of information, The Canadian Society for Pelvic Medicine wants our members and other stakeholders to be aware of the following report released in June 2020 entitled: Les complications liées à la mise en place d’une bandelette sous-urétrale. We are working on a bilingual response, providing important information related to this subject and will be identifying Canadian Centres that will see patients with mesh complications. Stay tuned for more information in the coming days!

The Top 5 Selected Abstracts

Dear Colleagues,

Thank you for submitting your abstracts to the annual CSPM meeting.

Unfortunately, we were not able to hold the April 18, 2020 annual CSPM meeting due to COVID-19 restrictions. We recognize the effort put into your research work and we have proceeded with judging the submitted abstracts. Abstracts were anonymized and reviewed by 4 independent reviewers who did not submit an abstract to the meeting: 2 local and 2 external reviewers.

The top 5 abstracts were to be presented at the meeting but now instead have been posted on the CSPM website.

Resource for Patients: CSPM Telemedicine Providers

The coronavirus pandemic has been a challenge for all of us, including patients who are now left wondering if or when it will be safe to resume scheduling face-to-face appointments. The pandemic has resulted in an increase in the use of telemedicine, and to that end, we are sharing a list of CSPM members who are conducting virtual appointments with patients via telemedicine.

The full list can be viewed here.
