Physiotherapy Assessment After Prostate Cancer

Physiotherapy Assessment After Prostate Cancer

Explore the fundamentals of a Men’s Health physiotherapy assessment
Physioplus is an extremely helpful resource. I have been out of ‘hands on’ Physiotherapy for a few years (doing humanitarian work abroad), and this has given me up to date, evidence based research and guidelines. I wish I’d discovered it earlier: it would have saved me a lot of trawling around the Internet for high quality articles.

Introduction

Problems relating to incontinence and sexual dysfunction are common side effects after both surgical and non-surgical interventions for prostate cancer. The assessment of a patient who is having problems after their treatment for prostate cancer is essential to understanding their full clinical picture. Assessing men with problems in their pelvis is complicated and a comprehensive subjective and objective examination needs to be performed. In this course, Pierre Roscher will take you through the basics of the subjective and objective examination for male pelvic health issues and how to differentiate between causes and what other conditions to screen for. The Prostate Cancer Programme of courses is an introduction to men's health and physiotherapy and further education is recommended to effectively treat this patient population.
