A multidisciplinary approach to Bowel Dysfunction or Disorders allows for the management of multiple factors simultaneously including pharmacologic management, psychosocial issues, medical-surgical decisions, physical therapy rehabilitative intervention and urogynecologic components of patient’s symptom cluster. A linear approach can often lead to unsatisfactory management of this complex patient type because success in one discipline may require the intervention of others to be effective. Availability of multiple services simultaneously allows for a comprehensive intervention strategy tailored to each patient’s needs at any given period of time throughout the rehabilitative process.

This is a multilevel class, proof of basic pelvic floor course with internal examination is required. WCS certification or letter of recommendation of supervisor, mentor, or colleague is permitted.
