GCU Professor Suzanne Hagen has been invited to speak about pelvic floor dysfunction at the International Urogynecology Association (IUGA) conference on March 13.
Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Professions Research Unit (NMAHP RU) Deputy Director will give her expert views on pelvic floor training during a 45-minute discussion.
The discussion is part of a virtual symposium on ‘A Multidisciplinary Approach to the Prevention and Management of Pelvic Floor Dysfunction’.
Professor Hagen said: “I am delighted to be involved in this forward-thinking event that recognises the importance of different healthcare professions working together to give women the best care possible.
“I hope our research on different models of service delivery for pelvic floor muscle training will positively inform the discussion.”
IUGA President Ranee Thakar explained more about the conference: “Working closely with our Nursing and Midwifery and Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation Special Interest Groups, we have developed an educational and interesting program filled with both workshops and didactic sessions focused on the importance of a multidisciplinary team, perineal care and healing, the patient experience and psychological impact of birth trauma, and much more.”
