PELVIC HEALTH ELECTIVE
|Method of Instruction||Hybrid|
|Course Description||This course is designed to prepare the entry-level physical therapist on the unique approach in completing an evaluative screening and treatment plan for a patient with pelvic health issues. Many pelvic health issues are frequently under-reported and under-diagnosed based on common misconceptions and social stigmas associated with these sensitive and personal conditions. As we move into our doctoring profession, health and wellness can be part of the cornerstone of a pelvic health specialty, however, appropriate and timely diagnosis and treatment is essential. Physical therapists are an integral part of the multidisciplinary approach assisting women and men to overcome and manage health issues. This course is designed to enable students, as entry-level clinicians, to improve care for clients throughout their lifespan based on emerging scientific and clinical evidence related to medical conditions unique to pelvic health, and those which occur more frequently in women or present differently in women. The course will include presentations for key pelvic health specialty and subspecialty disciplines including bone health across the life span, obstetrics and gynecology, chronic pelvic pain, bladder and bowel dysfunction, nutritional dysfunction, cancer rehabilitation and fibromyalgia. Topics will primarily target women from adolescents, childbearing, peri-menopause, menopause, post-menopausal and geriatric years. The pelvic health specialty will also cover similar topics for the male and pediatric populations.|
