January 14th - May 10th 2019

From a multidisciplinary approach, this course introduces the basic aspects of urinary incontinence and its conservative treatment to understand the key aspects that can be improved by eHealth tools. After discussing existing technologies, we present the WOMEN-UP system, which is the result of an ambitious research project funded by the European Commission.

Each module has two video lessons. The course is in English with subtitles in Spanish. This course no longer provides certificates, but is still open to anyone.

The course is oriented to health professional, caregivers and students of Medicine in general, although anyone interested is welcome.
