Herman & Wallace

The pediatric population is greatly under-served causing undo stress for the child and family as well as development of internalizing and externalizing psychological behaviors. The two most common pelvic floor dysfunctions in the pediatric population are dysfunctional elimination syndrome and bed-wetting. This specialty continuing education course focuses on the treatment of children with day or nighttime incontinence, fecal incontinence, and/or dysfunctional voiding habits.

MISSION TRIP: Pediatric Incontinence and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

Why do I want to go and what will I accomplish?

The incidence of Cerebral Palsy (CP) in Nepal is estimated to be over 60,000. Children (and adults) who suffer from CP also present with bowel and bladder leakage which significantly affects their quality of life and leads to infections and other medical complications. Additionally, a recent pilot study revealed an incidence of urinary leakage in school children aged 10-16 at 73% as compared to 6-13% in developed countries!

I saw a meaningful need and God has opened the door for me to fulfill this lifelong dream to go to Nepal! Due to many unique experiences and events recently, an opportunity opened up to go in 2020!

What I plan to accomplish is training of the physical therapists at the Kathmandu University of medical sciences in Nepal how to treat children with bowel and bladder issues. Nepal currently does not have any trained providers and this training will provide sustainability as these providers will be able to treat multiples of children with bowel bladder issues in addition to strategies for prevention.

The plan is also to visit several villages with a Self-Help group for Cerebral Palsy to educate families and care givers how to manage incontinence and constipation in these children.
