Pelvic Health
Symposium

Join the expert staff of Novant Health Pelvic Health Center for practice pearls in addressing pelvic health.

This is a special one-day workshop comprised of remote didactic sessions and in-person hands on practicum geared towards all health care providers including MD’s, APP’s, PT’s and RNs with an interest in urology, urogynecology and women’s health issues. Pelvic floor disorders affect everyone, especially as we age: a third of women over the age of 45 have urinary stress incontinence, one half of women over the age of 65 have loss of bladder control, one eighth of women have a lifetime risk of surgery for pelvic organ prolapse, seven to fifteen percent of adults suffer from fecal incontinence or “Accidental Bowel Leakage” and eleven percent of men age 60-64 leak urine and this increases with age. This course offers you updates on the latest in treatment options and the opportunity to engage in procedural training and better equips you to evaluate various pelvic floor disorders in your patient population.

Registration is required for EACH portion of this CME event. Please register and pay for both the didactic portion and hands on portion separately.
