Course Focus ( Complete Course aims to follow)
This new 2 day course with Joanne Millios will focus on the Assessment and Management of the Pre and Post Prostatetomy patient and other common Men's Health presentations. There will be an emphasis on the use on non invasive ( external ) assessment techniques to include diagnostic Ultrasound imaging which form part of Jo's PhD. The course will address the management of common conditions such as urinary incontinence, erectile dysfunction and pelvic pain. Jo will also outline the important role of Physio led exercise classes for this patient group. This course will be of interest to international and UK physios who are either currently working in Men's or Womens' Health but want to develop more expertise in these conditions especially Prostate Cancer. It is also suitable for Physios who currently have no experience of Pelvic health but have an interest in getting involved in Men's Health Physio and are keen to use non invasive techniques. Jo has the ability of bringing her extensive and unique men's health clinical and research experience to her teaching. It will be a great two days which will impact hugely on the participants' clinical practice.
