In this workshop, we define pelvic floor muscle (PFM) terms used in the assessment of PFM function and dysfunction, describe the application of the test and interpretation of the test finding within a framework of diagnostic decision-making. The workshop covers the assessment of both structure and function of the PFM undertaken externally (per perineum), and internally (per vaginam or per rectum). Both essential and advanced assessment will be discussed. The assessment of PFM function will be placed into context of the assessment of the common presentations of pelvic floor dysfunction. Terms that in the past have been non-standardised will be clarified.
