2024 Tas Branch Symposium

The Tasmanian Branch extends a warm invitation to APA members and colleagues to attend the 2024 Annual Symposium.

The Symposium presents a dual opportunity to participate in a high-quality professional development program, and network with fellow Tasmanian physiotherapists.

The Symposium program will be supported by a number of invited local speakers.

Theme: When sex and gender matter

There will be several thought-provoking presentations throughout the day including:
- Physiotherapy and perimenopause
- Male pelvic health
- Psychosocial and socioeconomic barriers in managing chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome in men
- Athletes' knowledge of pelvic floor dysfunction and engagement with pelvic floor muscle training

Keynote Speaker: Dr Andrea Mosler FACP, FASMF

Andrea will present 'Hip and groin pain in the female athlete- not just little men!'.

Hip and groin pain represents a diagnostic challenge for clinicians due to the extensive potential sources of pain, co-existing causes of pain, and heterogenous terminology used in the literature. For women, hip/groin pain diagnosis and aetiology are further challenged by hormonal, body composition, pregnancy, and age-related changes which occur over a woman's lifespan. While female athletes appear to experience a lower burden of adductor-related groin pain than their male counterparts, women experience a disproportionate burden of hip pain throughout their lives. When women experience hip/groin pain, reduced physical activity and poor quality of life are common sequelae.

This presentation will explore the epidemiology and aetiology of the various musculoskeletal causes of hip/groin pain in women. The considerable gaps in research with women as participants will be highlighted. The potential biological, psychological, and socio-cultural reasons for hip/groin pain burden in women will be explored in this presentation.

Additional presentations and speakers:

- 'Discussing the difference between sex and gender', Niki Deiter APAM
- 'Physiotherapy for male pelvic health', Morgan Kent APAM
- 'Menopause for physiotherapists – It's hot, stiff and not that sexy', Rachel Andrew MACP, APA Continence & Women's Health Physiotherapist
- 'Toward Understanding the Lived Experience in Men with Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome (CPPS) and Barriers to Optimal Pain Management', Dr Arthur Sone-Wai Li, Clinical Psychologist
- 'Male and Female Athletes' Knowledge of Pelvic Floor Dysfunction and their Knowledge of and Engagement with Pelvic Floor Muscle Training', Jacinta Magor, Master of Physiotherapy Student
