Post-Conference: Let’s Talk About Sex! Sex Counseling for the Pelvic Health Therapist
Speakers: Uchenna Ossai, PT, DPT and Heather Edwards, PT
Sexual counseling within the physical therapy profession is essential for helping patients optimize their sexual function as their bodies are changing throughout the lifespan. To be an effective counselor, you have to understand the intersecting factors of race, gender, orientation, culture, and ability. For providers in all specialties (pelvic health, neuro, ortho, oncology) talking about sex can seem tricky, taboo, and maybe even nebulous. In this course, we aim to give you a more in-depth understanding of human sexuality and straight-forward counseling tools and skills to help your patients engage in satisfying sexual practices. This postconference course is available for $235 for APTA Academy Members and $385 for others. (.8 CEUs)

Post-Conference: Gynecologic Cancer and Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy: A Research Update
Speaker: Nelly Faghani, PT
Cancers in the pelvis account for a relatively large percentage of new diagnoses for both cis-males and females. Side effects can occur with any type of cancer treatment, whether that be surgical, radiation, or chemotherapy. The severity and type of side effects will depend on the specific area or organs effected, size of area treated, type and amount of surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, and overall health and co-morbidities. Pelvic health physiotherapy is uniquely positioned to address symptoms of cancer treatment including urinary, bowel and sexual dysfunction. This evidenced based course discusses a whole-person approach that can help improve the quality of life in this extremely under-serviced population. This postconference course is available for $235 for APTA Academy Members and $385 for others. (.8 CEUs)
