In order to provide the mandatory practical experience necessary for competence in pelvic floor muscles assessment, the practical session within the workshop requires that each participant be willing to personally perform AND undergo vaginal assessment procedures.

Feedback from previous courses:
“I thoroughly enjoyed the course. It covered everything about incontinence and pelvic floor exercises that I wanted to know and I now feel confident to use all of the information and practical components in my clinic."

“Pauline was a fantastic speaker – easy to understand – held my interest very well – humorous – I really enjoyed all the presentations.”

“Found the whole weekend really valuable, especially the pelvic floor practical sessions as they consolidate theoretical info. The exercises were great.” (Note: Most attendees voted prac exercises most useful.)

Course convenor: Complete Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy

 

        

The weekend consists of 8 hrs theory and 3 hrs per vaginum prac work. Prac groups of 4 with one tutor per two groups ensure you personal attention and enough variety and interest to get the best educational outcomes. Pauline’s presentation of the theory is finely honed over many years experience and research to bring you the essential up-to-date information package. Eileen’s ongoing clinical caseload provides practical treatment and assessment to use immediately in your practice.

Certificates of attendance will be provided for the theory and practical components of the workshop. In order to provide the mandatory practical experience necessary for competence in pelvic floor muscles assessment, the practical session within the workshop requires that each full weekend participant be willing to personally perform AND undergo vaginal assessment procedures. There is a two-day theory-only option for health professionals who do not wish, or are not qualified, to perform per vaginam vaginum practical investigation.
