Presented by the Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA) in combination with Women’s Health Training Associates (WHTA),  this series of six online lectures provides the background knowledge underpinning introductory clinical practice in women’s pelvic health. The content introduces the physiotherapist to normal bladder and bowel function, bladder, bowel and pelvic organ support dysfunctions, as well as first-line introductory assessment and treatment of the female pelvic floor patient.


Important: These lectures are required to be completed prior to attending the  APA Level 1 Women’s Pelvic Health face-to-face course (1 day).
