Course Description

According to professional organization guidelines and evidence based research, behavioral treatments are first line interventions for urinary and fecal incontinence and overactive bladder and are recommended for related disorders such as voiding dysfunction, bladder pain syndrome/interstitial cystitis, and urinary retention. These are common functional problems. These interventions, often referred to as conservative treatments, are aimed at improving symptoms through education on healthy voiding habits and lifestyle modifications and pelvic floor muscle rehabilitation that involves biofeedback and/o electrical stimulation. However, education on pelvic floor rehabilitation is not readily available. This course will provide a comprehensive review of pelvic floor disorders and rehabilitation treatments. Emphasis will be placed on the use of equipment for augmenting these interventions. Presentation of case studies will be part of the course. Prior to the workshop, attendee will complete a survey to identify learning needs.



Behavioral Objectives

At the end of this course, the participant will be able to:

1. Explain the anatomy and physiology of the lower urinary tract and pelvic floor to include normal voiding and structural support.

2. Define pelvic floor disorders

3. Discuss bladder emptying problems

4. Identify components of a pelvic floor rehabilitation program

5. Understand the use of biofeedback for pelvic floor dysfunction

6. Review of other treatments for bladder and pelvic floor problems
