It is critical that rehabilitation professionals who work with patients suffering from incontinence and pelvic floor dysfunction have a comprehensive understanding of the factors that impact continence and dysfunction. This course is divided into two parts; part one consists of a self-paced online course and part 2 consists of a 2 day lab. Participants may register for part one only but must complete part one in order to participate in the part 2 lab sessions.
In Part 1, participants will gain theoretical knowledge of the anatomy, physiology and function of the healthy pelvis and pelvis floor, pathophysiology, and mechanisms of dysfunction. In Part 2 (lab), vaginal and rectal exams will be demonstrated and practice.
