The Fawzia Sultan Rehabilitation Institute (FSRI), a non-profit healthcare institution, under the sponsorship of the Kuwait Society for Student Support (KSSS), hosted an educational workshop on women’s health physiotherapy as part of its efforts to promote healthcare education across the Kuwaiti medical community.
The two-day workshop featured international female health physiotherapy specialist, Michelle Lyons, and was attended by local physicians and healthcare providers from both the public and private sector. The comprehensive workshop provided participants with general theoretical knowledge, as well as practical skills training, to help them develop treatment strategies for a wide range of issues affecting women including incontinence, pelvic pain, and menopause.
“We believe that continuing professional education is critical for improving clinical practice in all fields of healthcare. Workshops like this one help practitioners garner advanced therapeutic knowledge and insights, as well as develop and hone practical skillsets to provide the best level of care to patients,” said Dr. Elham Al-Hamdan, President and Medical Director of FSRI.
On his part, Talal Alarab, Chairman of the Kuwait Society for Student Support said: “We at KSSS are always looking to partner with institutions and organizations that support education, and whose goals and values are in line with our own goals and policies. We had begun working with FSRI in 2013, due to their being a non-profit institution that supports education and actively participates in many educational initiatives.”
