POP LAY ADVISORY ASSEMBLY

The voices of women experiencing pelvic organ prolapse are considered integral to the development of APOPS directives. Members of APOPS 'POPS' support forum as well as those who reach out via social media, website, and landline, provide critical insights into the true impact of POP to quality of life. The voices of women from around the world navigating pelvic organ prolapse diagnosis and treatment, including women navigating mesh surgery, mesh free surgery, mesh complications, newly diagnosed with POP, utilizing nonsurgical treatments, women from childbirth phase through end of life, essentially women in all phases of the pelvic organ prolapse dynamic, provide a priceless source of precise POP insights. Of significant value is the energy shared by women walking the walk of POP, energy which magnifies and clarifies APOPS vision and direction. The collective voices of women of every age, race, nationality, socio-economic, and employment sector share a common goal - to simply feel good again. With their insights, APOPS will bridge the gaps between patient, clinician, academic, policy, industry, and research sectors.
