The treatment of urinary incontinence in women is a complex area of medicine which has seen some exciting developments in recent years. This course is designed to give health care professionals – particularly primary care physicians – a fresh look at the available approaches to resolving urinary incontinence and, importantly, how various therapies can be used in conjunction with one another to resolve this debilitating problem.
The complexity of this field of medicine makes it extremely difficult for the GP, continence clinician or physiotherapist to have expertise across all areas. Developed by six industry leaders in the areas of clinical practice, research, surgery, physiotherapy and geriatrics, this course will support primary care physicians in upskilling, understanding and providing improved care to women with urinary incontinence.
This online course includes both theoretical background and practical clinical information. The inclusion of clinical case studies and interactive questions will optimise engagement and learning outcomes.
This course is suitable for all primary care physicians, including general practitioners, continence clinicians, physiotherapists, continence nurse advisors and anyone with an interest in urinary incontinence.
