Registration is now open for NIDDK’s Individualizing Treatment for Urinary Incontinence – Evolving Research Questions into Research Plans meeting, to be held Feb 1&2, 2018 at the Natcher Auditorium, on the NIH Campus in Bethesda, MD. The meeting aims to help teams of investigators develop plans for interdisciplinary research that will build the knowledge base to enable better targeting of existing treatments to appropriate persons with urinary incontinence.
Participants are encouraged to register with colleagues from their institutions with diverse areas of expertise to facilitate interdisciplinary research planning.

- Enhance interdisciplinary thinking amongst specialties and those with interest and involvement in urinary incontinence research, including pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgeons, urologists, urogynecologists, geriatricians, scientists, engineers, nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, administrators and economists.
- Expand participant understanding of the role of basic science, engineering, behavioral science and clinical science in individualizing treatment for persons with urinary incontinence, their caregivers, and community.
- Inform participants of novel research methodologies that can be used to study individualizing treatment and examine outcomes.
- Discuss opportunities to involve families, peers, and other social network members of people with UI into research, treatment, and ongoing care.
- Guide interdisciplinary research teams in the development of actionable research plans that will enable improved targeting of existing or novel UI treatments.
- Provide time for research teams to confer with experts in clinical trial methodology and biostatistics regarding their research strategy.

Optional Session for New Investigators (Feb 1, 8am – 12:30pm)
In addition to the main meeting, participants may register to attend an optional session for new investigators, Establishing a Research Career in Benign Urologic Conditions. The session will review federal funding sources for research on benign urologic conditions, discuss strategies for balancing clinical care and research, and provide mentoring opportunities from senior investigators, among other activities.
Additional Meeting Background
This meeting builds on the March 2017 Individualizing Treatment - Broadening the Framework for Urinary Incontinence Research meeting, where participants reviewed numerous biologic and non-biologic factors that may influence individual treatment success and identified hypotheses and research questions to build the knowledge base that will enable better targeting of existing treatments to appropriate persons with urinary incontinence. Participants at the February 2018 meeting are encouraged to review the Executive Summary of the March 2017 meeting: https://www.niddk.nih.gov/news/eventscalendar/Documents/FINAL_and_APPROVED_NIDDK_Individualized_Treatment_Summary_March_30_2017_508.pdf
