Course summary

Overview

Are you a physiotherapist, midwife, nurse specialist or doctor working within pelvic health? If so, this advanced clinical practice pathway in pelvic health, is designed to provide you with the solid academic foundation that you’ll need to progress as an advanced clinician in the management of pelvic floor dysfunction.

On this course you’ll learn to understand the relationship between the musculoskeletal support systems of the pelvis and pelvic part of the body and related areas of practice. You’ll study antenatal and postnatal management of pelvic floor dysfunction, male and female urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, the management of defecatory dysfunction, faecal incontinence and pelvic pain. The aim is to improve your understanding of pain science and management and help to better embed this knowledge into everyday practice. The programme integrates theory with practice and you’ll learn skills such as advanced abdominal, vaginal and anorectal examination.

This course will challenge your diagnostic capabilities to ensure you’re able to competently work at an advanced practice level. As you progress to the final stages of the MSc, this degree will further integrate healthcare leadership and research within the pelvic health area.

Careers and your future

The advanced clinical practice and understanding of pelvic health learnt on this course will help you to improve the quality of care you deliver to your patients.

The course is ideal for physiotherapists, nurses, midwives specialising in postnatal care and health practitioners who treat pelvic floor dysfunction in urogynaecology, colorectal and urology. Students can also exit with PGCert and PGDip awards.
