What to expect:
This introductory course is appropriate for all Pelvic Health Professionals who are working with patients with pelvic diagnoses (urinary incontinence, pelvic pain, vulvodynia, prostate pain, endometriosis, PCOS). Pelvic health professionals frequently discuss food and liquid intake with their patients, but many do not have the competence and tools that they need to assess, understand, and effectively advise their patients with respect to nutritional changes that would help to improve their symptoms. What’s more, rehab providers typically spend more time with their patients than do other providers. This allows an excellent opportunity to providers to promote health through education about nutrition and lifestyle. This course will give providers a foundational understanding of functional nutrition and will improve pelvic health professionals’ ability to provide appropriate, evidence-based information, while still acting within their scope of practice.
