We hope this email finds you and your loved ones safe and well during these tumultuous times.
As you know, healthcare professional from across the globe are dealing with the unprecedented challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. The SIU Office of Education is a leading voice for international urology in this time of uncertainty through its various eLearning programmes on SIU Academy, many of which have been made open access until August 1, 2020. There are also several initiatives currently being developed to ensure high-quality educational materials are easily accessible to urologists from around the world.
Our first undertaking has been the development of a survey on the management of urological conditions in the era of COVID-19. As a member of the SIU Community, we would like to know how you and your peers are managing your patients during these difficult times as this is becoming an increasingly important area of discussion. As such we would like to request that you complete and share the link to this short questionnaire with your colleagues by Friday, April 03. Given the quickly evolving nature of this situation, the one-week timeline to complete the survey is necessary to ensure the information collected is relevant and timely. The survey results on the current attitudes and practice patterns will then be shared with the global urological community.
