Urinary Incontinence Management in Women

  • : Online

Developed by six industry leaders in the areas of clinical practice, research, surgery, physiotherapy and geriatrics, this course will support primary care physicians in upskilling, understanding and providing improved care to women with urinary incontinence.

This online course includes both theoretical background and practical clinical information. The inclusion of clinical case studies and interactive questions will optimise engagement and learning outcomes.
