(Incontinence, POP (pelvic organ prolapse), Pelvic pain, Sexual Health)
Patients in Arizona with pelvic floor disorders are not being treated to the standard of care.
CTAP wants to change this. We think it would be unethical not to educate people on the risks and the financial costs of treatments that don't follow best practice guidelines.

CTAP is the fundraising, research, and education partner of CCA. It is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) educational organization based in Phoenix, Arizona. The mission of CTAP is to increase awareness of the benefits of conservative treatments for people with incontinence, female pelvic organ prolapse(POP), pelvic pain, and sexual health issues. Education begins with the general public and encompasses the medical community as well. CTAP would like to see evidence-based, cost-effective healthcare that highlights the patient as the most important part of the healthcare equation. Our mission is to see this become the norm in Arizona as it is in most of the country.
While it seems insurmountable, CTAP will not stop fighting for patients. CTAP believes that standard of care and medical guidelines should be set by science and statistical analysis and by Academic Medical Societies, not the government or industry. CTAP is the foundation willing to stand up and go the distance for these patients. CTAP will actively educate both patients and clinicians, utilizing methods and marketing strategies that the industry uses very successfully. For example, free continuing medical education units, meals, and rewards for attending, as well as in-office scientific-based presentations with meals provided. These presentations will be of published works that have given permission for the distribution of data for the betterment of humanity. CTAP hopes to be able to provide educational scholarships to the members of this medical subspecialty community. CTAP would like all patients to have ALL of their options explained to them in a clear manner, meaning factual, not biased. Providing this information to patients will lead to less expensive and better clinical outcomes, as well as happier, healthier patients.
CTAP will solicit donations and grants from like-minded individuals and organizations that have no ulterior motives other than those of CTAP. CTAP will also write research proposals for unrestricted funding opportunities to increase awareness of how to provide this particular group of patients with better, more compassionate, cost-effective care. CTAP's focus is to end the stigma/embarrassment of these very personal healthcare issues while advocating for primary care providers to ask patients pertinent questions for early interventions. Education is crucial to good decision making both for patients and healthcare professionals.
