This 1.5 day ONLINE course will enable the participant to perform a comprehensive evaluation of the male pelvic floor patient and to establish and progress an appropriate treatment plan, for incontinence or for pain.  It will also allow for a clear understanding of male sexual function as well as typical mechanisms of dysfunction, especially in relation to the above pathologies.
