Pediatric Incontinence and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction is organized by Herman & Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute and will be held from Jun 05 - 07, 2020 at Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital, Grand Rapids, Michigan, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 17.5 Contact Hours. Target Audience: This continuing education seminar is targeted to physical therapists, occupational therapists, physical therapist assistants, occupational therapist assistants, registered nurses, nurse midwives and other rehabilitation professionals. Content is not intended for use outside the scope of the learner's license or regulation. Physical therapy continuing education courses should not be taken by individuals who are not licensed or otherwise regulated unless they are involved in a specific plan of care. Course Description: According to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, by five years of age, more than 90% of children have daytime bladder control. What’s life like for the other 10% who experience urinary leakage during the day? At night, as many as 30% of four-year-olds experience urinary leakage. Bedwetting is a pediatric issue with significant negative quality-of-life impact for children and their caregivers. Children who experience anxiety-causing events may have a higher risk of developing urinary incontinence, and, in turn, incontinence causes significant stress and anxiety for children (Thibodeau et al., 2013). Bowel dysfunction, such as constipation, is also a contributor to urinary leakage or urgency, and with nearly 5% of pediatric office visits occurring for constipation, the need to address these issues is great (Constipation in Children, 2013). As pediatric bladder and bowel dysfunction can persist into adulthood, pelvic rehabilitation providers must direct attention to the pediatric population to improve the health in our patient populations. The pediatric population is greatly underserved, causing undo stress for the child and family as well as development of internalizing and externalizing psychological behaviors. The two most common pelvic floor dysfunctions in the pediatric population are dysfunctional elimination syndrome and bedwetting. This specialty continuing education course focuses on treatment for children with day or nighttime incontinence, fecal, incontinence and/or dysfunctional voiding habits. This course begins with instruction in anatomy, physiology andin development of normal voiding reflexes and urinary control. The participant will learn terminology from the International Children's Continence Society, medical evaluation concepts for bowel and bladder dysfunction, and common dysfunctions in voiding and defecation. Common causes of incontinence in the pediatric patient will be covered, and a comprehensive approach to evaluation will be instructed, including video examinations of the pelvic floor and surface electromyography (or sEMG, a form of biofeedback.). Course Objectives: Upon completion of this continuing education seminar, participants will: • List two muscles groups and describe three functions of the pelvic floor • Understand the development of normal urinary control in pediatrics • Understand medical red flags for abnormal voiding and when to refer to medical doctor • List the four phases of defecation and describe the rectal anal inhibitory reflex • Identify common causes of constipation and its relationship to bladder dysfunction • Perform soft tissue techniques for constipation • Describe the pelvic floor relationship to voiding reflexes • Understand pediatric urology terminology and investigative tools used for testing the pediatric patient for differential diagnosis • Discuss education and treatment about diet, including bladder health and bladder retraining • Understand pediatric pelvic floor dysfunctions on sEMG as it relates to bowel and bladder function • Identify the need for referral based on sEMG findings and visual PFM assessment • Evaluate the effects of posture and positioning on pelvic floor muscle recruitment and relaxation • Understand the psychological effects of bedwetting, daytime urinary incontinence and fecal incontinence and know when to refer to appropriate practitioners • Describe behavioral treatments or urotherapy for pediatric pelvic floor dysfunctions • Understand the use of surface electromyography (sEMG) in the pediatric patient • Develop treatment progressions for children with pediatric bowel and bladder dysfunction • Perform verbal instruction of pelvic floor activation • Perform three diaphragmatic breathing techniques for pediatric patients, including diastasis rectus abdominis assessment with examples of core activation • Discuss the effects of toileting postures on pelvic floor muscle recruitment and relaxation
