The aim of this workshop is to provide knowledge and skills that will improve the success of, and adherence to, conservative therapies for incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. Specific objectives are to: briefly describe key health behaviour models with applicability in the rehabilitation setting, discuss the application of these models in clinical practice, give clinical examples of how these theories are applied and the evidence (based on clinical research, with specific reference to urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse) of their effectiveness.
