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. Students must therefore have access to an appropriate clinical caseload in order to be able to undertake the practice module. 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.

Why Bradford?

This is the only programme of its kind in the UK offering this specialist area of study. The Certificate was developed and is regularly reviewed jointly by Pelvic, Obstetric and Gynaecological Physiotherapy (POGP) (formerly the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Women’s Health) and the University of Bradford.

This ensures the continued clinical relevance of the programme. A further strength of the programme is the use of external lecturers who are specialists within their field and continue to have a clinical caseload.

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.

Career support and prospects

The University is committed to helping students develop and enhance employability and this is an integral part of many programmes. Specialist support is available throughout the course from Career and Employability Services including help to find part-time work while studying, placements, vacation work and graduate vacancies. Students are encouraged to access this support at an early stage and to use the extensive resources on the Careers website.

Discussing options with specialist advisers helps to clarify plans through exploring options and refining skills of job-hunting. In most of our programmes there is direct input by Career Development Advisers into the curriculum or through specially arranged workshops.

This Postgraduate Certificate offers the physiotherapist a range of opportunities to develop advanced theoretical knowledge and practical skills relevant to their role in continence care and pelvic floor dysfunction and thus extend and enhance their clinical practice and career pathway. 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.
