What will this course cover ?
This 2 day course will start by covering normal childhood bladder and bowel anatomy and function along with an outline of Bladder Bowel dysfunction (BBD). The bulk of the course will cover urodynamic assessment of BBD both with non-invasive strategies such as Diaries, Uroflowmetry (together with use of EMG) and ultrasound scanning and invasive urodynamics to include videourodynamics and ambulatory urodynamics. Practical hands-on demonstration along with work-shop scenarios will be provided along with case studies.
Who is suitable for this course ?
Health professionals working in the field of Childhood BBD including doctors, nurses or therapists, who would like to further their practice or expertise, or indeed, for those who are starting out in this work and would like a course focusing on these aspects. Our aim is that the attendee will leave the course with a better understanding of Childhood BBD along with the skills to assess BBD using urodynamics, and treatment including Biofeedback and superficial neuromodulation in the form of TENS. Certificates of attendance will be provided. The course is approved by the International Children’s Continence Society and United Kingdom Continence Society and is sponsored by Laborie.
