Charles Darwin University Researcher and Nurse, Lolita Wikander, will share the latest research relating to physical activity, specifically resistance training, and female urinary incontinence as well as the implications for working with female athletes.
Lolita is a Senior lecturer in Nursing at Charles Darwin University and a powerlifting coach. Her research aims to discover whether resistance training may be recommended as a safe alternative to traditional pelvic floor exercises, to improve strength and reduce incontinence in women. The research findings may inform Continence Australia guidelines, and the coaching of female weightlifters.
