To provide a forum for discussion of current research and new ideas in the field of pelvic physiotherapy. Research in this area is occurring at a fast pace. It is nearly impossible to stay up to date alone. This format allows structured discussion of research and its application to practice. This forum is not structured to allow for discussion of individual patient questions unless they relate to the articles discussed. Discussions include clinical application.
"I have been printing out the articles every month and have thoroughly enjoyed reading them. Thanks"
"Thank you so much for creating the Pelvic PT Distance Journal Club. Even though I don't attend the online meetings I often refer to the research articles. This is an extremely critical at this time, as I am "convincing" local insurance companies that Pelvic PT should be standard of care. The research you've made available is imperative to my fight. THANK YOU!!"
