This two-day course is for physiotherapists already working in the field of obstetrics and gynaecology and with experience of internal vaginal examinations. Experience of internal rectal examinations is not essential to attend the course.

Participants are encouraged to practice techniques on each other in order to learn the techniques but also to experience the sensation of being palpated and to experience the changes in their own pelvic floors under the hands of the participating therapists.

Course Objectives

◦To provide participants with the evidence to enhance clinical reasoning in the management of all pelvic floor dysfunction

◦To provide participants with news manual skills to enhance current practice

◦To challenge participants to re-examine their clinical practice in the light of the presented techniques and evidence
