This Postgraduate Certificate is aimed at physiotherapists working in the speciality of continence care and rehabilitation in a variety of health care settings.

It offers physiotherapists a range of opportunities to develop an evidence based approach to clinical reasoning through the ability to identify, analyse and interpret the current best available evidence and apply this to practice of continence care using appropriate assessment and therapeutic intervention skills. Students will study in-depth issues related to both male and female continence and pelvic floor rehabilitation.

The modules include teaching blocks at the Faculty of Health Studies, University of Bradford to encourage shared learning. Peer physical examination is used during teaching, viable alternatives are available if required. Further learning and teaching on the practice module occurs in the clinical setting.

Each student will be allocated a clinical mentor for the practice module.

The programme is endorsed by the Pelvic, Obstetric and Gynaecological Physiotherapy (POGP). Physiotherapists who successfully complete the Certificate are eligible for full membership of POGP.

Learning activities and assessment

The Postgraduate Certificate consists of two 30 credit modules:
-Continence Theory for Physiotherapists
-Continence Practice for Physiotherapists

The core modules, which consist of theoretical and practical components, are delivered in residential blocks and in an appropriate clinical setting. Each student will be allocated a clinical mentor. Successful completion of both core modules will result in the award of a postgraduate certificate.
