Course Description: 

This online course is designed for physical therapists looking for first exposure or knowledge enhancement to evaluating/treating men with pelvic floor muscle dysfunctions resulting in urinary incontinence. With one out of 10 men suffering from involuntary bladder control loss, it is imperative that their needs are addressed.   

 Emphasis will be placed upon men post-prostatectomy, TURP and cystectomy which are very common urological procedures.  This course will help build the clinical knowledge necessary to achieve positive outcomes for improved bladder control in men. The varied lecture/video lab format will allow participants to learn how to collect the appropriate subjective and objective data in a friendly and comfortable manner. The content will consist of subjective interview, pelvic floor muscle awareness training including external and internal palpation, eg, sEMG biofeedback training and progressive therapeutic exercise.
