Get up close with the pelvic anatomy you treat every day to deepen your understanding of pelvic pain presentations.
If it’s been a while since you had the privilege of returning to the anatomy laboratory to learn, then you’ll love this event!
Pelvic pain and organ dysfunction is a common presentation - with 1 in 5 women and 1 in 12 men suffering at some time in their life. This sensitive area of practice requires a sound understanding of functional pelvic anatomy, embryology and how this translates to common symptomatology, and individualised treatment.
This clinical anatomy course - hosted at the University of Melbourne Cadaver Wet Lab - utilises real cases seen by the interdisciplinary team at the Women’s Health & Research Institute of Australia in Sydney to review the clinical anatomy of pre-dissected pelvic cadavers under the guidance of gynaecological surgeon and pain medicine physician Prof Thierry Vancaillie and advanced pain management osteopath Liz Howard.
These cases will highlight the importance of understanding the complex interrelationship of the pelvic anatomy structures and how this helps us understand patient symptoms.
The day will conclude with a tour of Melbourne Uni’s private Harry Brookes Allen Museum of Anatomy and Pathology - one of Australia's largest collections of human tissue specimens, comparative anatomy specimens and historical anatomical models.
At the end of this workshop you will be able to;
