Is Continuing Education Part of Your New Year's Resolution?

New Year's Resolution

Another circle around the sun.
Another covid pandemic run.

Courses scheduled all year round.
Remote Courses. Live Events, and Satellites abound.

From Oncology and the Pelvic Floor Level 1and Pregnancy Rehabilitation.
To Pain Science for the Chronic Pelvic Pain Population.

Instructors are ready.
With TAs aplenty.

Prove your advanced expertise
And sit for the PRPC.

Our resolution here at Herman & Wallace is to provide even more course content for you! Our plan is to have a total of 22 new courses from 2021-2022 available and over 400 course events/satellites scheduled! In addition, we at H&W want to take the time to let our faculty, teaching assistants, hosts, and students know how much we appreciate you! As the pandemic continues into 2022, know that we see you. We appreciate all that you do and the efforts that you go to. 

The best way to make an attainable New Year's Resolution is to use SMART goals. Most of us have seen SMART goals used for work and business decisions. Keep the specific, measurable, and time-specific aspects of goal setting while making sure they are attainable and realistic.

Did you set any New Year's Resolutions yet? If not, then here are 5 suggestions!

  1. Learn something new. Have fun while challenging yourself to take the next step in your pelvic rehab journey. H&W offers courses that are beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels.
  2. Build your confidence. Whether it is in gaining confidence in internal exams, or in treating the lumbar nerve H&W has a course for you.
  3. Meditate & Practice Mindfulness in your personal life and practice. H&W recommends joining Restorative Yoga for Physical Therapists or Boundaries, Self-Care and Meditation.
  4. Try something that scares you. Push yourself to try things that are out of your comfort zone. Take a new course for a different patient demographic to incorporate into your daily practice such as Bowel Pathology and Function or Transgender Patients: Pelvic Health and Orthopedic Considerations
  5. Volunteer. Give back to the Pelvic Rehab Community by TA'ing for a satellite course.

Herman & Wallace wishes you a fresh start with renewed energy and confidence throughout the New Year. Happy 2022!

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas

Have a Herman & Wallace Christmas

 

‘Twas the night before Christmas, no more chores to befall us
So I looked for new courses from Herman & Wallace!
 
Continuing education is crucial to me
To expand my skillset and earn PRPC.
 
The children were all snuggled, not worried or leaky,
Due to Pediatric Incontinence and Dawn Sandalcidi.
 
Their rooms were filled with toys and nostalgia,
While I was upstairs researching Pudendal Neuralgia.
 
When out on the lawn, there arose such a clatter!
But thanks to Pelvic Floor level 1, I had control of my bladder.
 
Away to the window, I flew like a flash-a
 
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Reminded me that there were Sacroiliac Joint Concepts I didn’t know.
 
When what to my wondering eyes should appear
But Herman & Wallace instructors from the upcoming year!
 
There’s Tanner! There’s Horton!
There’s Dugan and Sullivan!
 
There’s Reale and Abbate
And Cathcart and Futterman!
 
Some stood on the porch, some stood near the wall.
They teach courses in winter, spring, summer, and fall!
 
I invited them in without hesitation,
As Kristina Koch told me about Pharmacologic Considerations.
 
Their faces were friendly, their dispositions so merry!
With Herman & Wallace, learning isn’t as scary.
 
As we talked at length about the upcoming year,
They let me know I had nothing to fear.
 
So many courses to choose from! So much useful information!
 
 
Eventually, night turned to morning and they had to depart
But I knew that my career would soon get a jumpstart.
 
I thanked them and bid them adieu without unction,
For they held important knowledge about pelvic floor dysfunction.
 
Then I heard them exclaim in the early morning calm,
“For more info, visit Herman Wallace Dot Com!”

 


 

Happy Holidays to all of you from Herman & Wallace!

New Courses

Herman & Wallace has more than 55 different courses with over 200 individual course events scheduled throughout the year to choose from. Our course catalog is growing all the time with new courses, new instructors, more course dates, and even more satellite locations!

In 2022 there are already six BRAND NEW courses available, with more to be planned. H&W is kicking off the new year strong with Dr. Michael Hibner on January 9th with Pudendal Dysfunction: The Physician's Perspective. Kristina Koch is back in 2022 with her newly updated and reformated course, Pharmacologic Considerations for the Pelvic Health Provider which is scheduled for April 10, July 9, and November 19th.

Do you live near Salt Lake City, Utah? Our first live, in-person course since the pandemic will be there on March 12-13, 2022: Dry Needling and Pelvic Health.

  • Disclaimer: Due to the nature of this course content, it will be delivered in the traditional "in-person" manner. This means the course instructors will be teaching at a single location, and it will not be possible to join the course remotely via video conference. As with all Herman & Wallace courses, this course content is only intended for practitioners who are licensed appropriately, and for whom dry needling is within their scope of practice. It is the responsibility of every course registrant to check with their state boards to ensure that the content of a Herman & Wallace course that they attend is within their state-specific scope of practice.

Interested in women's health? There are 3 new courses appearing this year: 

Are you thinking about taking a course, but not sure if it is for you? H&W courses are for licensed practitioners interested in the field of pelvic rehabilitation. The most common registrants that we see in our courses include:

  • Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO)
  • Doctor of Chiropractic (DC)
  • Nurse-Midwives (CNM)
  • Nurse Practitioners (ARNP)
  • Occupational Therapists (OT)
  • Occupational Therapists Assistants (OTA)
  • Physical Therapists (PT)
  • Physical Therapists Assistants (PTA)
  • Doctor of Medicine (MD)
  • Physicians Assistants (PA)
  • Registered Nurses (RN)

H&W courses are classified as Beginner (no prerequisites), Intermediate (one prerequisite), or Advanced (two or more prerequisites). A Beginner course can be taken by a licensed practitioner without prior coursework requisites. Therapists interested in registering for an Intermediate or Advanced course must review the prerequisites on the course description and honestly assess/report their fulfillment of the published prerequisites.

For example, courses that have Pelvic Floor Level 1 as a prerequisite require a working knowledge of performing internal assessments. It is never recommended that a participant skip this introduction without prior training or experience performing an internal exam. Some courses are part of a series and it is not recommended that they be taken out of order. On the Continuing Education Courses page, you can click the Experience Level tab to see courses organized by level of difficulty.

Clinical experience or alternative coursework may be a substitute for the published course requirements, and it is recommended that a therapist considering opting out of a published prereq review the objectives of the required course and assert that said objectives have been met. Review the Course Overview and Objectives on each course page and ask yourself what your treatment goals (in both the long and short term) are and what patient population you are targeting. All courses list the learning objectives, which will give you a lot of information about what you'll be learning at a given course.

If you would like additional guidance on which course offering best fits your goals and target patient population, please contact us! We are here to guide you into an event that best suits your needs.
