This session will describe classifications of urinary incontinence, treatment and education to initiate in any physical therapy setting, and when to refer to a specialist. Constipation and pelvic organ prolapse will be addressed and its affects on urinary incontinence. Finally, patient care case studies will be presented that will help the learner with problem-solving how to incorporate pelvic floor interventions into their treatment plans, along with appropriate goal writing. The content of this course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.
