As this aspect of osteopathic practice is highly specialised it is important to be appropriately trained.
The CNMO is offering a Certification process, which is endorsed by the International Society for Osteopathic Healthcare (isohc.org) to support practitioners working in this field. This programme is suitable for home students, and international ones, as most of the practical attendance can be done as a block (you have to additional identify 2 half days of observation of a practitioner doing complex pelvic pain patient consultations (doesn’t have to be an osteopath – it is anticipated that you will explore this option local to you, and is designed to aid familiarity, and to encourage interprofessional liaison).
Please read this pdf for an outline and then contact the College of further information. There are live streamed taught elements, a practical technique training element, clinical observation requirements and case report write up requirements as the core components. Mentoring is also available.
The advanced certification is a credentialing process which is time limited – in other words it is important to review your certificate periodically to ensure you are current with evidence and best practice in your field. Not all elements of the certificate need to be recompleted each time, but all need to be completed at some point to ensure ongoing recognition of your competence for recognition of your credentialing by the endorsing authority the CNMO works with in this regard – the International Society for Osteopathic Healthcare. Other regulatory authorities or credentialing organisations may choose to adopt the standards encompassed in this process, and some may choose to recognise this qualification. Please enquire with your relevant regulatory authority or professional association directly.
The taught elements (live streaming lectures, start on 12 January 2022, and the practicals are in July, in BRISTOL. The practical components are only open to those who are enrolled in the advanced certification programme, have completed the live streamed programme – or worked through it as a recorded option, and participants MUST have prior experience of visceral and associated myofascial bodywork approaches.
