Uro Santé, a teaching company
Uro-Santé, a teaching company, was founded in 1994 by Claudia Brown and Marie-Josée Lord, two physiotherapists with expert knowledge in the field of Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy. Claudia and Marie-Josée have been successfully treating patients affected with pelvic floor disorders for more than 30 years and serve the population of greater Montreal with a network of four clinics.
Courses for Physiotherapists
Claudia and Marie-Josée teach pelvic health courses for physiotherapists across Canada. They first worked on their own clinical expertise for many years by attending courses, seminars and workshops internationally and by studying the available scientific literature on the subject. Being bilingual allowed them to learn from experts from France, Belgium, Australia, Norway and England….all before the internet! As their expertise grew, they were continually being asked for information from physiotherapists who wanted to learn how to develop their own skills in this field. In response, Claudia and Marie-Josée created the first Canadian pelvic floor physiotherapy course, which was organised through l’Ordre Professionnel de la Physiothérapie du Québec in November 1993. There was so much interest in the course, they had to give another one just three months later! Since then, Claudia received her Master’s degree with research in pelvic health and Marie-Josée became chair of the Women’s Health Division of the CPA. They both continue to treat patients, take courses, and participate in studies in the field of Pelvic Health. They regularly update their teaching material according to their experiences and the latest findings in the evidence-based literature Both Claudia and Marie-Josée have a teaching style that is very practical, well-organized, clear, and fun. Uro-Santé courses are full of valuable information, enabling their students to immediately apply their knowledge and techniques to their current treatment practise.
Claudia has been a clinic owner and manager for more than 30 years. She currently divides her clinical and supervisory time between La Clinique de Physiothérapie Concorde, Uro-Santé’s downtown clinic, and Action Sport Physio Cabrini. Claudia lectures nationally and internationally on the topic of pelvic floor physiotherapy. She has written several articles for the scientific and the lay audience, has been interviewed on television and for lay publications, and has participated in several research projects related to this field. She acts as consultant, reviewer and committee member for various projects related to pelvic health, at local, professional and government levels. In 2016, Claudia was awarded the Prix d’Excellence from the Ordre Professionnel de la Physiothérapie du Québec, for her contribution to the profession in the field of pelvic floor physiotherapy.
