Overactivity of the pelvic floor is often unrecognised and not well understood. Written resources on the subject are very limited and much of the management of the Overactive Pelvic Floor (OPF) is based on clinical experience.
This workshop is intended to serve as a valuable resource for clinicians with an interest in the pelvic floor. In addition, the workshop will provide clinical tools for medical and mental health practitioners alike for recognition, assessment, treatment and interdisciplinary referral of patients with OPF and OPF-related conditions. This workshop will serve as an occasion for caregivers to refine OPF patient management as well as stimulate investigative efforts.
