Changing "POP" Culture - - An Evidence-Based Approach to Helping People with Pelvic Organ Prolapse
Presented LIVE & Recorded: Tuesday 30th January, 2024, 8pm ET
About the seminar:
We have found that pathologising, restricting activity, and using fear-based advice have had unintended negative consequences for some and is not reflective of the current evidence for those with Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) concerns.
This 3 hour seminar offers an evidence-based reconceptualization of POP evaluation and management that seeks to challenge current POP-culture and offer practical strategies to apply in the clinical setting.
With the recent scope of practice for PTs/physios being able to fit and manage pessaries, we have included the latest research and clinical practice about how to determine who this is appropriate for and how to manage this new development in POP-culture that you can be a part of.
This seminar also includes skills to navigate answering clients’ questions about prognosis, activity limitations, and strategies for navigating symptoms during exercise that can be immediately applied by the individual.
If you want to be part of the change in current POP-culture, and continue to help more people with pelvic organ prolapse, then this seminar is for you!
Who is this course for:
This course is for Pelvic Health Professionals working with individuals with concerns about organ descent, clinically known as Pelvic Organ Prolapse. Pelvic Health Physical and Occupational Therapists, Fitness professionals, MD/DOs, NPs, RNs, PAs, and other medical and healthcare professionals who would like a more evidence-based and biopsychosocial approach to care can benefit from this seminar.
What you will learn:
Implement current evidence and terminology on Pelvic Organ Prolapse including prevalence, known risk factors, evaluation, and grading, including reconceptualization of what is “normal” in terms of organ descent.
Apply clinical strategies in the management of POP, with a focus on modulating symptoms for exercise and daily function.
Integrate a biopsychosocial model of care, utilizing skills to navigate answering clients’ questions about progression/regression of organ descent and activity limitations.
Determine the appropriateness of how pessary fitting and management applies in their clinical practice including which clients may benefit from a pessary (fitted by them or someone else).
How will attendees apply what they’ve learned into their practice:
This seminar includes skills to navigate answering clients’ questions about prognosis, activity limitations, and strategies for navigating symptoms during exercise that can be immediately applied by the individual.
Why will people want to take this course?
Anyone with an interest in helping people navigate POP will learn tangible clinical skills as well as strategies for helping their clients during this seminar.
Who has time to read and analyze the breadth of evidence available for POP, IAP (intraabdominal pressure), and assessment and management strategies like pessaries? We have taken the time to do this for you. Stay up-to-date on best practices for this common condition that affects so many individuals.
Also included with the course is a patient handout updated with the most up-to-date information on POP management that you have permission to use in your practice, to which you can even apply your own clinic branding!
