“Althea” (meaning to heal) is an online Intimate Health Education Program developed by Maureen for Health Care Professionals interested in expanding their knowledge or practice of women’s health in the area of bladder, vaginal and sexual health.
Althea provides Health Care Practitioners with the additional understanding, awareness, education and tools to assist women experiencing intimate health issues which include bladder, vaginal and sexual health that impact their quality of life and relationships.
Althea is for physicians, NPs and/or pelvic floor physiotherapists who wish to expand their intimate women’s health knowledge and practice.
Althea is also for RNs interested in setting up an evidence-based independent private practice.
There is an option to take the Althea course in person over a weekend for those who so desire and or those health care practitioners interested in learning how to do pessary fittings for those women diagnosed with prolapse.
A leader in her field, Maureen is a public speaker on sexuality, sexless marriage, overall health and relationships for men and women.
Maureen is Chair of the BC Chapter of Canadian Nurse Continence Advisors. She is the Executive Director of the Women’s Health Initiative Network (WHIN), an organization that raises awareness about intimate health issues and solutions for women.
