In this online continuing education course, Dr. Tripp highlights the prevalence of suicide risk in patients suffering from interstitial cystitis, prostate cancer, and inflammatory bowel disease.

He also provides insights into the suicidality models that help us understand such behaviors. Particular emphasis will be placed on predictive and protective factors ranging from depression to assessments of resilience.

This clinically relevant data will be discussed in regard to current treatment options such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and interventions such as de-catastrophizing.

The instructors
Pelvic Health Solutions

Pelvic Health Solutions (PHS) is an evidence-based teaching company that aims to educate and empower physiotherapists, healthcare professionals, and everyday people about pelvic health.

PHS was founded in 2010 out of the need to develop pelvic health resources in Ontario at a time when it was an under-serviced health concern. PHS provides continuing education courses, mentoring, and clinical resources for a variety of practitioners with the goal of equipping them to deliver evidence-based, biopsychosocial assessment and treatment of pelvic health problems in our province and abroad.

Our company also exists as a way to connect people experiencing pelvic health concerns to pelvic health physiotherapists in their area. PHS has ultimately blossomed into a community of curious people who are committed to providing hope and healing to those who suffer from pelvic health issues.
