Additional information / Directions

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. This course has been developed primarily to advance the practice of Registered Physiotherapists who have experience in the assessment/management of women with urinary tract symptoms and are competent in the clinical skill of ano-rectal examination. It will help such 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). It is open to application by physiotherapists without this prior knowledge and experience, however for such participants there will be limited application to practice. Please see the ‘Relevance of this course to your scope of practice’ section below for more information.  
 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.
