Physiotherapy in Women's Health & Continence for Physiotherapists

These postgraduate certificates are of benefit to physiotherapists working in the speciality of women’s health or continence rehabilitation across a variety of healthcare settings. They offer physiotherapists a range of opportunities to develop advanced knowledge, critical reasoning & practical skills relevant to their role in order to extend clinical practice in this field of rehabilitation. These are currently the only programmes in the UK offering these specialist areas of study. 

Each Postgraduate Certificate consists of two 30 credit core modules, which consist of theoretical and practical components. These are delivered by University-based teaching blocks and work-based learning in an appropriate clinical setting together with guided distance learning. The assessment process involves a presentation and submission of written work, including a portfolio-based assignment.

Successful completion of both core modules will result in the award of a postgraduate certificate. It is possible to extend study and undertake additional modules towards the award of MSc Physiotherapy in Women’s Health / Continence Practice. Students who have completed other University courses in the last five years may have them considered to contribute to this Masters programme.

The work-based learning component for the 'Physiotherapy in Women's Health' certificate comprises clinical practice, including the assessment, examination and treatment of patients with musculoskeletal problems related to pregnancy and continence dysfunction in the clinical setting together with visits to specialist clinics, for example ante-natal clinic and gynaecology out-patient clinics. 

The work-based learning component for the 'Continence for Physiotherapists' certificate comprises clinical practice, which will include the assessment, examination and treatment of patients with pelvic floor, bladder and bowel dysfunction in the clinical setting together with visits to specialist clinics, for example urology and gynaecology out-patient clinics.
