This practical workshop will provide a theoretical and practical approach to learning pelvic anatomy, provides an overview of pelvic structures and supports with clinical applications. Pairs of participants will then work together to build a pelvis using clay and other materials starting with the bony pelvis. Participants will identify bony landmarks of the pelvis and upper femur, the obstetric dimensions and clinical correlates. They will identify the attachments and build the ligamentous structures, muscle groups, pelvic organs and nerves that comprise the pelvis resulting in a complete pelvis enabling visualisation from an abdominal and perineal perspective.
