Abstract

There is no agreed assessment tool for physiotherapists treating pelvic organ prolapse. This study hypothesised that pelvic organ prolapse quantification (POP-Q) assessment was a feasible measure for use by physiotherapists and tested inter- and intra-rater agreement. Forty-five women were recruited (median age 59, range 32–87 years). Agreement between gynaecologist and physiotherapist was substantial (weighted kappa¿=¿0.63).
