About The Seminar

We have found that pathologising, restricting activity, and using fear-based advice have had unintended negative consequences for some and is not reflective of the current evidence for those with Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) concerns.

This 3 hour seminar offers an evidence-based reconceptualization of POP evaluation and management that seeks to challenge current POP-culture and offer practical strategies to apply in the clinical setting. 

With the recent scope of practice for PTs/physios being able to fit and manage pessaries, we have included the latest research and clinical practice about how to determine who this is appropriate for and how to manage this new development in POP-culture that you can be a part of.

This seminar also includes skills to navigate answering clients’ questions about prognosis, activity limitations, and strategies for navigating symptoms during exercise that can be immediately applied by the individual.

The seminar was recorded live so you can watch it over again and again!

Included is an insightful Q&A with Terri, Teresa and Antony recorded live, AND an additional bonus Q&A!

If you want to be part of the change in current POP-culture, and continue to help more people with pelvic organ prolapse, then this seminar is for you!
