Course Fee: £140
A/Prof. Craig Allingham
Men's Health Physiotherapist
Men's health is not just about continence and erectile function. As a physiotherapist, every male client you consult with is a men's health issue. Sometimes it will be low back pain or a sports injury, or it might be neurological or cardiac rehab. Yet it is when he presents before or after prostate cancer treatment that we consider it 'men's health'. As front-line health practitioners we have an opportunity to actively contribute to the health of men in our clinics, our groups and our families.
This one day event covers the prostate cancer process, journey and physiotherapy role, preceding it with an understanding of the social constructs of men and their health and how it impacts on our work with them whatever they have come in for.
This event is now welcoming registrations from specialist cancer nurses who would like to update their knowledge on prostate cancer anatomy, diagnosis, treatment pathways and how physiotherapists can help with the recovery for their patients. Our experience in Australia shows that an interdisciplinary attendance benefits all parties as they leave with a clearer awareness of how they can work together, and it is a chance to build professional networks and identify like-minded practitioners.
Craig Allingham is an Australian physiotherapist with a long history of working in elite sport including four Olympic Teams before he turned his focus to men's health following his fathers diagnosis of prostate cancer. Over 12 years he developed a program for post-prostatectomy clients which formed the basis of his book 'Prostate Recovery MAP - Men's Action Plan'. He then went on to set up a training course for physios in Australia (with Jo Milios and others) in men's health which has introduced almost two hundred practitioners to the field over four years. Most recently Craig has released a new book, The Prostate Playbook, a strategic guide to keeping the prostate where it should stay.
