POGP Advancing your skills into Men’s Health Part 1: Physiotherapy assessment and management of lower urinary tract symptoms 29 Sep 2018 MILTON KEYNES

This POGP theory-only study day provides participants with the opportunity to better understand the physiotherapy assessment and management of men with lower urinary tract symptoms. It has been developed for Registered Physiotherapists who have experience in both the assessment/management of women with urinary tract symptoms and competent in the clinical skill of anorectal examination. The study day will help participants expand their existing knowledge in order to develop their scope of practice into the assessment and management of men with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS).

The study content includes: male pelvic floor anatomy and physiology; subjective and objective assessment of the man with lower urinary tract symptoms and an introduction to the management of the pre-/post-prostatectomy patient, including those with prostate cancer. A number of case study discussions will facilitate the development of your clinical reasoning skills and knowledge of management/treatment options.
