Designed for NPs, MDs, CNMs, PAs and RNs from women's health, family practice and internal medicine settings, the 21st annual conference, Advances in Health Care for Women Over 40, will address the clinical challenges you face every day in your care of perimenopausal and menopausal women. What issues do you find particularly challenging? Is it the physical complaints as they try to cope with the discomforts associated with hormone changes? Or maybe their confusion (and yours!) over whether or not hormone therapy is an option for them? Are you hearing more concern from your patients about mood changes, sleep disturbances and decrease in libido and do you have tools and strategies to share with them? Are you familiar with the non-hormonal options you could recommend for dealing with menopause symptoms? Is a "drug holiday" the best approach for your patient with osteoporosis who has been on bisphonates?
Join us in sunny Scottsdale for this national conference where the latest research will be translated into clinical pearls and evidence-based approaches for assessing and managing a variety of issues women face during the transition will be presented. Bring your questions and puzzling cases…our dynamic faculty will give you answers and guidance. And be prepared to hear information that may contradict your current practice and protocols. After all, isn't that what continuing education is all about?
