Race Description

This is a two-day race designed to give the clinician an understanding of the impact of gynecological cancer on a woman's health and quality of life, and an insight into the role of the gynecological oncology multidisciplinary healthcare team. Many pelvic dysfunction physicians have developed expertise in pelvic dysfunction, including musculoskeletal conditions and neurological impairments. Oncology-related dysfunctions, lymphatic system disorders, hysterectomies, and other disorders. Pelvic rehabilitation providers will find that the contents of this course will be improved.

The therapist will gain an understanding of the diagnosis and treatment of gynecological cancers, and will also appreciate the short, medium and long term implications of these treatments, especially pelvic floor & lymphatic function, cancer related fatigue and bone density issues. Common female gynecologic cancers including ovarian, uterine, cervical, vaginal, and vulvar cancer will be covered. The therapist will be understood as a front-line member of the healthcare team, not only towards the primary care of the musculoskeletal system, but also in terms of prevention, self-care, and referral. The lymphatic system will be discussed, and specific interventions will be made for the lymphatic system including, but not limited to, genital lymphedema. An evidence-based approach to treating cancer-related fatigue and osteopenia / osteoporosis will be instructed.

Throughout this course, it will be developed, that such conditions as sexual dysfunction and pelvic pain can be effectively treated by the pelvic rehabilitation therapist. The therapist's directory of clinical reasoning, manual therapy and exercise prescription, will be developed, along with an exploration of psycho-oncology, especially as it pertains to female sexual function. This course will include reading, hands-on lab activities, and case examples.
