The Ultimate Bowel Course: GI and Pelvic Floor – ONLINE – SELF-PACED – with Susan Clinton
June 4, 6:27 pm EDT
Susan C. Clinton, PT, DScPT, OCS, WCS, FAAOMPT, NBHWC
THIS COURSE IS ONLINE AND SELF-PACED AND CAN BE FOUND HERE.
A comprehensive approach to gastrointestinal disorders including bowel and digestion dysfunction. This approach allows for the consideration of management of multiple factors s including nutritional, psychosocial, medical-surgical decisions, and physical therapy examination/intervention advanced intervention. A multifactorial approach can often lead to improved management of this complex patient as a varied intervention approach may be required to be successful. A comprehensive understanding of the physiology and symptom manifestation can improve the ability to develop a comprehensive intervention strategy tailored to each patient’s needs throughout the episode of care.
- This course contains lecture and lab (with options for small-group, online labs).
- You will receive the pre-course reading, slides, and resources for the course ahead of time.
Here is what you must have for the optional lab:
- A partner
- A surface suitable to do internal work
- A balloon catheter with stop-cock
- A few condoms
- A towel or pad
- Fun class! I was impressed with the knowledge gained in just the first 15 minutes of the weekend course!
- Susan has great knowledge and passion for what she teaches. She also has a great calmness in the way she teaches.
- I LOVED this course! I feel much more prepared to take on patients with fecal incontinence!
- I have taken several bowel courses in the past and this was by far the most enjoyable! With most of the basic anatomy and physiology covered in pre-course reading materials, we were able to focus on the practical application of skills, nutrition counseling, learning rectal ballooning, and having great discussions about all things bowel-related. I have started to think more holistically in my treatment as a result. Thanks!
- This was hands down one of the best courses I have ever taken. Susan takes such a fluid approach to teaching that leaves you craving more. This is the second time I have taken the course. I learned so many new skills and fine nuances that I did not fully appreciate the first time around. Susan brings so much energy and enthusiasm to the class, making skills practice in the ano-rectal area very approachable and non-threatening. Thanks for an amazing course!
