Pelvic health physiotherapy is an area of rapid professional growth and development with more awareness of conditions such as urinary dysfunction, obstetric anal sphincter injury, bowel dysfunction, prolapse, perineal trauma and constipation.
Developing further expertise in pelvic health is challenging and can be a source of frustration to clinicians. Lisa Hastie is an experienced Pelvic Health Physio who has worked in the NHS as a specialist for 15 + years and has been involved in the education and training of other physios in the NHS, UK & internationally.
Bowel dysfunction is a condition that patients can find difficult to get high quality information on and treatment for and is a cause of much distress and physical limitations. Physiotherapists have a big role to play in this condition.
This brand new course is ideal for the women’s health physio who wants to develop their clinical skills and scope of practice and further help the women and men of their communities.
This Course will further develop your ability to assess, treat and manage more complex female and male pelvic health presentations such as Bowel dysfunction and will focus on :
Commonly encountered conditions in practice:
Ano-rectal assessment in clinical practice
Treatment and management strategies:
The multidisciplinary team in the management of bowel disorders
