VIEWMale Pelvic Pain
Presented byGerard Greene, MSc ( Manip Physio) , MCSP, MMACP, PG Cert H Ed

Men’s health physiotherapy is seen to be approx. 20 years behind female pelvic health in terms of research, training, mentoring and number of clinicians in this field. Male pelvic pain is a common condition with marked effects on quality of life and patients often go through a torturous path to find a clinician who can help their condition. This online seminar will present the condition of male pelvic pain and the role of physical therapy from a combined pelvic health and musculoskeletal perspective. It will also address the assessment and management of this complex condition and highlight the skill sets that are required and transferable between specialties. It will also highlight other subsets of patients such as those with athletic pelvic pain and also those centrally & sympathetically driven hard flaccid syndrome. As we need more physical therapists involved in male pelvic pain this webinar will also highlight ways of getting started in this specialist field and also how to develop a men’s health area of practice drawing on the experiences of Gerard & Jo.

VIEWTrauma Sensitive Physical Therapy Care
Presented by Talli Rosenbaum, MSc

Experiencing a traumatic event may elicit a response of overwhelming fear, helplessness, and horror and for many, these feelings can persist well after the danger has passed. Undergoing a trauma can be a life-altering experience, and it can impact feelings and behaviors, as well as work personal and social relationships. The manner in which trauma survivors respond in health care settings, including physical therapy, often reflects their altered sense of safety in the world.

As it is estimated that up to 70% of people worldwide have been exposed to some type of trauma, it behooves health care professionals to apply universal precautions by providing trauma-sensitive and trauma-informed care.

In this on-demand online course designed for physical therapists, participants will learn the basics of trauma, how various types of trauma can affect people, and how trauma can affect how your patient interacts with you in therapy. General physical therapists as well as specialists in women’s and men’s health, where more invasive and intimate procedures are routinely provided, are invited to view this on-demand online course, and to learn skills for ensuring patients’ emotional and physical health in the physical therapy setting.
