Intravesical drugs are those administered directly into the bladder for treatment of cancer in the bladder wall lining. The 4-hour event provided an evidence-based practice update for nineteen regional nursing staff. A consultant urologist, a uro-oncology nurse practitioner, a continence nurse, surgical nurse and clinical nurse educator provided information. Displays of clinical resources and patient supportive care information were also available. Of 18 evaluations completed 16 found the event 'Very valuable' and 2 'Average'.
