Date:  October 27-28, 2018
Location: College of St. Scholastica - Duluth, MN
Instructor:  Sarah Haag, PT, DPT, WCS

The world of pelvic health can seem intimidating to people experiencing bowel, bladder, pelvic pain or sexual issues, as well as to healthcare practitioners who would like to help!  Considering the high prevalence of issues like urinary incontinence, pelvic pain, and pelvic organ prolapse, and the large impact on quality of life these issues have, it’s unacceptable to ignore that many of these issues can be addressed with conservative care.

It is a common misconception that ‘pelvic health’ or ‘women’s health’ is a specialty niche practice available only to experts, and involves specialized equipment and invasive exams. In this two-day course, participants will learn about common pelvic/women’s health issues, how and when to ask about those issues, assessment, and interventions supported by current evidence, and when to refer to another practitioner.  All assessments will be ‘pants on’, but the pros and cons of intravaginal and intrarectal exams will be described and discussed.
