Continence and Women's Health
Continence and women’s health physiotherapists work as primary care clinicians in private practice or public hospitals, with men, women and children. Career opportunities include working within multidisciplinary team in specialities such as urology, gynaecology, oncology, general surgery, sexual health, pain medicine and gerontology.
Our postgraduate courses in continence and women's health are designed to develop your clinical expertise through evidence based practice, clinical reasoning and sound diagnostic and therapeutic skills. They provide an opportunity to learn and advance knowledge and skills in assessment, diagnostics and treatment in women’s, men’s and pelvic health physiotherapy and its related areas of practice. In addition, you will develop knowledge and skills in the management of conditions that are unique to women, more prevalent in women, more serious in women, have different risk factors in women and require different interventions in women.
In particular, the courses aim to develop your clinical skills in assessing and managing pelvic floor dysfunction, including disorders of bladder and bowel functions, pelvic organ and pelvic girdle support, sexual dysfunction, and pelvic pain. You will also become an expert evaluator and consumer of research.
