Find out more about Kate Walsh here.

Educational workshops

All educational work-shops will be developed using insight gained via course feedback from the many courses Kate has taught on over the years, underpinned with latest evidence based clinical practice so they are not only informative but clinically relevant and may be easily applied to your clinical practice.

Overview of bladder/bowel/sexual dysfunction 

  • Overview of bladder/bowel/sexual dysfunction

  • Basic functional anatomy/subjective assessment

  • Asking the right questions and interpreting the answers

  • Understanding the principles of persistent pelvic pain and where it fits into managing:-

    • Pelvic floor dysfunction

    • Complex pelvic pain presentations (including vulval       symptoms/dyspareunia/bladder pain syndrome)

Bowel dysfunction

Assessing and understanding bowel symptoms/function and where this may fit into “posterior compartment” symptoms

Sexual pain

Opening conversations and interpreting answers

Professional mentoring

1:1 Mentoring

This may focus on clinical development, service development or a hybrid model of both.

Packages may offer:

  • One-off session online covering specific topics or series of online sessions (max 1.5 hours each).

  • Joint clinic: Kate will visit you in your clinic and support in joint assessments of a clinical list developed from your clinical practice. This “on the job” learning will facilitate you developing clinical skills/reasoning as you discuss your management of each patient seen.

Group Mentoring

Sign up for a series of small group monthly sessions over 3-6 months.

Each session will last 1.5 hours and cover an educational topic ( determined by you) and the opportunity to discuss clinical cases and collectively brainstorm clinical conundrums that may have been bothering you!
