What will this course cover?
This two day face to face 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 demonstration along with work-shop scenarios will be provided along with case studies. We will not concentrate much on treatment but will provide demonstration of superficial neuromodulation such as TENS and the principles/practice of Biofeedback treatment.
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 knowledge and 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.
The course is approved by the International Children’s Continence Society and United Kingdom Continence Society and is supported by Laborie.
