This POGP study day provides participants with the opportunity to better understand pelvic organ prolapse. It has been developed for Registered Physiotherapists who wish to deepen their understanding and improve their management of women with pelvic organ prolapse. As the study day includes no practical sessions it will be of most value to those who have already received training for vaginal examination and who are looking to develop further knowledge in the speciality. It is not suitable for students.
The study day includes: relevant anatomy and physiology; the components of subjective and objective assessment; review of the current research and evidence for treatment; theory of conservative management and surgical treatment options and professional considerations. Please note: there are no practical sessions on this course.
