This 14 hour course is designed to give biofeedback practitioners clinical experience through hands-on lab (11 hours) and case study discussions (3 hours). This course is targeted for clinicians who have experience treating patients with sEMG biofeedback, and who understand pelvic floor anatomy and physiology. In this course we will discuss behavioral therapy and biofeedback treatment applications used to treat complex patients with urinary and fecal incontinence, constipation, and/or pelvic pain. Participants will be administering biofeedback assessments, conducting treatment sessions, and role playing patient instruction/education for each diagnosis presented. Participants will experience being a biofeedback practitioner and patient (using a self-inserted vaginal or rectal sensor) and move through many treatment rooms covering constipation, fecal incontinence, pelvic pain, and urinary incontinence. Lab instructors are board certified through the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance in pelvic muscle dysfunction. Resources for training and certification in this area of practice will be provided. Three hours mentoring credit will be given upon completion of this course.
Course instructors are Tiffany Lee MA, OTR, BCB-PMD and Jane Kaufman PT, MEd, BCB-PMD
