Corina Avni Past Pax Feedback;
I thoroughly enjoyed Corina’s Womens Health Concepts course! It’s a great starting point for anyone wanting to start working in WH. Corina is an animated, enthusiastic and knowledgeable presenter. Her deep understanding and passion for women’s health is obvious. She has a knack for making complicated concepts understandable. Thanks to her and Club Physio for keeping us learning during lockdown! I’m excited to learn more and am looking forward to doing some face to face women’s health courses post-covid19 – Claire
The Club-Physio Course by Corina Avni on Concepts in Pelvic Function and Women’s Health was absolutely incredible. Corina has such a beautiful way of simplifying and explaining concepts ensuring you will never forget what you have learnt. The course covered many various aspects of pelvic function and really broadened my knowledge. Thank you for producing such an amazing course and presenting it with such passion – Kara
It was great to have the opportunity to meet Corina in this online women’s health course. With a lot of irreverence she’s able to simplify and transmit her excellent knowledge in this field of physio, making you more and more interested in the topic! – Priscilla
To be honest this was my first online course . I am looking forward to taking more online women’s health courses. The experience of this class has been nothing but positive 😊 The course was everything you said it would be Corina – it was really fortunate for me to meet you through this course. Thanks Club physio. Shagufta
COMMON BLADDER ISSUES AND WHAT TO DO ABOUT THEM – A MASTERCLASS WITH CORINA AVNI – via zoom meeting;
We will take a trip through the life of a bladder, making sure everything that could go wrong does.
We begin in utero, and follow the life of The Bladder through all the usual issues – from nappies in infancy through bed wetting, to other forms of incontinence and the Life Events responsible. We are not only interested in issues of storage (leaking), we also concern ourselves with not being able to empty (residuals, infections and of course – more leaking!!). We deconstruct how the approach to bladder management has shifted over time, paying attention to i. structural disorders and ii. irritative disorders.
A framework of anatomy, physiology & neurophysiology, and pathology allows us to explore different bladder presentations and select appropriate management strategies.
Rather than applying protocols, we will apply our minds to the full range of urinary dysfunction.
• to review anatomy and physiology of the urinary tract and associated structures including pelvic floor muscles and connective tissue
• become best buddies with your bladder
• to appreciate the cascade of events involved in normal bladder filling/ emptying
• appreciate the impact of Life Events on normal function
• to differentiate between symptoms and systems
• to list at least 5 types of urinary incontinence
• to list at least 5 different voiding dysfunctions
• to apply simple strategies of advice and education in the management of common bladder problems
