Ever wish you could educate your patients in a group setting, give them useful and appropriate education on topics that mattered to them, and reinforce the teachings of your practice? While this may be possible for some practices, for many, it is not a reality. The time and energy it takes to put together a presentation, not to mention the promotional pieces needed to get the word out to your patients and community make these types of endeavors difficult for most busy healthcare professionals.  

That's where we come in.  Introducing NAFC's BE STRONG Class Presentation Kits.  We've rounded up the brightest minds in the industry to take all the guesswork out of developing an educational program for your patients.  Our BE STRONG Presentation Kits are developed by an esteemed advisory board of trained Physical Therapists, and come fully loaded with presentations, notes and instruction guides, and promotional materials such as patient handouts, posters, sample emails, and social media posts to help you get the word out.  

We are proud to offer these kits to our Healthcare Professional audience and hope you will use them to enhance your practice and spread the word about pelvic floor and urological health.

Host a free class and Get a free Kit!

For a limited time only, in honor of National Bladder Health Awareness Month, we're offering these presentation kits to HCPs who volunteer to present a FREE Class in their local communities during November and December 2017. After December 31st, kits will only be available to active NAFC Professional Members. (Sign up to become a member of NAFC here!)

To access the kit, please click on the "SIGN UP HERE TO HOST THIS CLASS!" button next to the presentation you would like to host and let us know when and where you plan to host your class. We encourage you to present more than one class! It is important for us to know this information not only because we want to help you promote your event, but also for us, and our sponsors, to know the impact we are creating in local communities. The more classes we are able to host and the more patients we can reach will result in more programs like these being developed in the future. 

Note:  Unless you are a member of NAFC, you must sign up to host a class to access the presentation materials.  Our materials are free to anyone who wishes to present a class in their community.

 

BE STRONG: BUILDING STRENGTH FROM THE INSIDE OUT

Our first and most popular presentation kit, this course provides patients with information on the anatomy of their pelvic floor, why it is important to keep it strong and healthy, common problems that can result due to a pelvic floor that is too weak,  and how to strengthen it and the many muscles that support it. A must have for your practice. 


STAY STRONG: CARING FOR YOUR PELVIC FLOOR THROUGH MENOPAUSE AND BEYOND

Our 2nd installment of the BE STRONG Program, STAY STRONG teaches patients how to maintain a healthy pelvic floor throughout life's many phases. We'll review the changes that women can expect to their body due to menopause, common problems that may affect their pelvic floor, and strategies to improve  pelvic floor health.


BE STRONG: SEX & THE PELVIC FLOOR

This presentation kit will focus on common issues with sex, including how to manage pain, incontinence, and vaginal prolapse as they relate to sexual intercourse. It will provide real solutions to address these problems, as well as tips to make sex more comfortable and enjoyable for your patients.

We expect this presentation kit to be available by September 22nd. We will email all volunteers who sign up for this kit with the access information as soon as it is ready.

 

BE Strong: Building Strength & A Healthy Prostate

Our first presentation designed specifically for men! This course reviews how to maintain a healthy prostate, symptoms and early warning signs of prostate trouble, the role of the pelvic floor as it relates to the prostate and bladder control, how to enhance pelvic floor muscle function, and how to incorporate these muscles into a daily routine.

We expect this presentation kit to be available by September 22nd. We will email all volunteers who sign up for this kit with the access information as soon as it is ready.

 

The BE STRONG program has truly been a grassroots effort, made successful by you and your willingness not only to host a class but your enthusiasm in spreading the word about our efforts. If you know of any peers or colleagues that may be interested in this opportunity, please send this information along to them.  We hope to recruit as many instructors as possible!
