Interdisciplinary Approach to Female Pelvic Pain: Case Studies (Recorded Webinar)

Presented by Cynthia E. Neville, PT, DPT, WCS

Interdisciplinary Approach to Female Pelvic Pain: Case Studies (Recorded Webinar)

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
Video Runtime: 105 Minutes; Learning Assessment Time: 19 Minutes

This course is a recording of a previously hosted live webinar event. Polling and question submission features are not available for this recording. Format and structure may differ from those of standard MedBridge courses.

Chronic or persistent pelvic pain affects one in seven women. In part 1 of this two-part webinar, we explored, via conversations with expert medical providers, how it takes a village of medical and clinical providers to comprehensively diagnose, treat, and manage this disabling condition. In this webinar, we'll use a series of case studies to examine and explain the interdisciplinary care of women with chronic pelvic pain.

Case studies of women with endometriosis, dyspareunia, myofascial pelvic pain, pudendal neuralgia, and bladder pain syndrome will highlight clinical decision-making by PTs and OTs in diagnosing and treating chronic pelvic pain through a multimodal approach to treatment. Physical and occupational therapists working with women, primarily (though not exclusively) in outpatient rehabilitation settings, will gain skills and further their knowledge regarding their role in treating pelvic pain and gain a deeper understanding of how the interdisciplinary team supports the care of women with pelvic pain.

Interdisciplinary Approach to Female Pelvic Pain: It Takes a Village (Recorded Webinar)

Interdisciplinary Approach to Female Pelvic Pain: It Takes a Village (Recorded Webinar)

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
Video Runtime: 115 Minutes, Learning Assessments: 20 Minutes

Chronic or persistent pelvic pain affects 1 in 7 women. It's often associated with other comorbidities, including depression and anxiety, and with other pelvic floor symptoms, including urinary urgency and incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, and bowel symptoms, such as irritative voiding, fecal incontinence, and constipation. In chronic pelvic pain, the musculoskeletal system is typically involved as a victim, a culprit, or both, yet it may not be considered in diagnosis and treatment.

This two-part webinar series will explore advances in our understanding of diagnosis and treatment of female pelvic pain. In part 1, conversations with expert medical providers, including a gynecologist, a urogynecologist, a physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist, a pain medicine specialist, a mental health provider, a physical therapist, and an occupational therapist, will highlight how it takes a village of medical and clinical providers to comprehensively treat and manage this disabling condition.

In part 2 (coming soon!), we'll explore the interdisciplinary care of women with chronic pelvic pain through a series of case studies. Physical and occupational therapists working with women, primarily in outpatient rehabilitation settings as well as other care settings, will gain skills and knowledge of their role in treating pelvic pain and how the interdisciplinary team supports the care of women with pelvic pain.

Geriatric Bladder Control: Promoting a Culture of Bladder Control in Senior Living Environments

Presented by Cynthia E. Neville, PT, DPT, WCS

Geriatric Bladder Control: Promoting a Culture of Bladder Control in Senior Living Environments

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

Bladder control problems, including urinary incontinence, negatively impact quality of life and rehabilitation outcomes. Urinary incontinence affects up to 70% of elders in senior living environments, and may impact 80% or more of elders with dementia. Physical and occupational therapists historically have relied primarily on nursing to mange bladder control problems. Nevertheless, rehabilitation clinicians can provide effective rehabilitation-based interventions, which may greatly improve bladder control in their patients. The rehabilitation, nursing, and medical team is increasingly collectively responsible for patient outcomes, including preventing falls, infections, and re-hospitalization. Therapists can promote a culture of bladder control in senior living environments by partnering in care with nurses and the medical team, and with each other. This course will explore strategies for improving interdisciplinary care and treatment of bladder control problems in senior living environments by creating a culture of bladder control.

Bladder Control in Elders with Cognitive Impairments

Presented by Cynthia E. Neville, PT, DPT, WCS

Bladder Control in Elders with Cognitive Impairments

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

Bladder control problems, including urinary incontinence, affect up to 70% of elders in senior living environments, and may impact 80% or more of elders with dementia. Urinary incontinence can cause tremendous burden on elders and their caregivers, and is often a key factor in a caregiver's decision to move an elder into a skilled nursing environment. Physical and occupational therapists play critical roles as team members and sometimes as primary providers in the care of elders with dementia. This course will demonstrate and explain evaluation and intervention strategies for bladder control problems in elders with cognitive impairments with a live patient and caregiver case study. Clinicians will learn key interventions to improve bladder control in elders, and will develop strategies for supporting caregivers and other providers, including nurses and nursing assistants, in their roles managing incontinence in this population.

Geriatric Bladder Control: Neurogenic Bladder and Emptying Dysfunctions

Presented by Cynthia E. Neville, PT, DPT, WCS

Geriatric Bladder Control: Neurogenic Bladder and Emptying Dysfunctions

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

Bladder control problems, including urinary incontinence, negatively impact quality of life and rehabilitation outcomes. Incomplete emptying, which may be caused by neurogenic bladder, is associated with incontinence and infections. Physical and occupational therapists can provide interventions for patients with incomplete bladder emptying to improve symptoms and reduce associated negative sequelae. This course will describe causes of incomplete bladder emptying, and will demonstrate and explain evaluation and intervention strategies for this bladder control problem in elders.

Bladder Control: Stress Incontinence and Pelvic Floor Muscle Training

Presented by Cynthia E. Neville, PT, DPT, WCS

Bladder Control: Stress Incontinence and Pelvic Floor Muscle Training

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

Urinary incontinence (UI) is a worldwide problem associated with negative rehabilitation outcomes for adults with a wide range of orthopedic and neurologic diagnoses and across the spectrum of rehabilitation settings. Physical and occupational therapists play an important if not critical role in identifying and treating bladder control problems, yet they frequently fail to identify UI or provide recommended interventions. This course will describe the problem of stress incontinence using a patient case study. The functional anatomy of the pelvic floor will be explained, and the exercise physiology of pelvic floor muscle training will be discussed. Participants will learn basic evaluation and non-invasive interventions to improve pelvic floor muscle function and bladder control to improve rehabilitation outcomes.

This course will use patient case studies to describe urgency incontinence and other bladder control problems widely experienced by patients undergoing rehabilitation. Participants will learn basic evaluation and non-invasive interventions to improve bladder control and to improve rehabilitation outcomes.
