Big thanks for all your messages and emails of support. Our Physio family is strong at this time. We are excited about using this period of uncertainty to develop some new online courses. Gerard has a lot of experience in this area, from his Assistant Prof role in Coventry University and the webinar he developed for the APTA. We move forwards together. Stay safe.
Dr Jo Milios will focus on the Assessment and Management of post prostatectomy urinary & Erectile dysfunction.
This course will be delivered over two days ( 8-12pm UK time ) on Saturday /Sunday 15th & 16th October 2022
Jo will focus on the Assessment and Management of the Pre and Post Prostatetomy patient. There will be an emphasis on the use on non invasive ( external ) assessment techniques to include diagnostic Ultrasound imaging which formed part of Jo's PhD. The course will address the management of common conditions such as urinary incontinence and erectile dysfunction. Jo will also outline the important role of Physio led exercise classes for this patient group. This course will be of interest to international and UK physios who are either currently working in Men's or Womens' Health but want to develop more expertise in these conditions especially Prostate Cancer. It is also suitable for Physios who currently have no experience of Pelvic health but have an interest in getting involved in Men's Health Physio and are keen to use non invasive techniques. Jo has the ability of bringing her extensive and unique men's health clinical and research experience to her teaching. It will be a great two days which will impact hugely on the participants' clinical practice.
