Pelvic Floor Dysfunction for New Nurse Practitioners

⭐️ CME Opportunity for this video below ⭐️

I’m SO excited to share this interview with you. I’m interviewing two pelvic floor therapists -- a family nurse practitioner who has gotten additional training, and a physical therapist with a specialty in pelvic floor therapy.

This is SO IMPORTANT. It seems like a hidden corner of medicine that we don’t learn about in school, or maybe it’s touched on when it comes to dyspareunia or urinary incontinence, but it’s so much more than that and we have the power to be so helpful for patients.

It relates to widespread chief complaints in primary care: dysuria, constipation, pelvic pain, and urinary incontinence, to name a few.

What You Need to Know About Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

In this video, we cover so, so many gems, including:

  • What is pelvic floor therapy?
  • What is pelvic floor dysfunction?
  • When would someone need that?
  • What do you wish primary care providers knew?
  • What resources do you recommend to learn more or to get patients access?
  • Why should we not give exercise handouts?
