Pelvic health and emotional wellness: Occupational therapist role with pelvic floor dysfunction

Presenters: Lara Desrosiers & Lindsey Kaupp

Pelvic floor dysfunction occurs in approximately 25% of women (Wu et al., 2014) and 4-8% of men (MacLennan et al., 2000). Symptoms and associated distress have a direct impact on daily habits, routines, meaningful occupation, and relationships. Occupational therapists already addressing these domains with clients are therefore well positioned to screen for pelvic floor dysfunction, its impact and make appropriate referrals. In this webinar, pelvic floor dysfunction will be defined and its impact on emotional wellness will be highlighted. This webinar will also identify evidence-based physiological, psychological and social interventions for pelvic floor dysfunction.

After taking part in this webinar, participants will:

  1. Screen for pelvic floor dysfunction in any practice setting.
  2. Understand the different ways in which pelvic health and emotional wellness are often intertwined.
  3. Describe the evidence supporting biopsychosocial approaches in the field of pelvic health.
