Target Audience

This course is designed for the practicing community of primary care providers and urologists who are seeking an update on important clinical topics in men’s health. The course is also well-suited for nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, fellows and residents.

Course Description

With the evolution of American healthcare and the reorganization of many regional healthcare systems, there are ever-increasing demands for healthcare access. As a result, primary care providers are increasingly caring for broader spectrum of disease, including urologic disease.

Men are disproportionately afflicted by urologic disease, and “Men’s Health” is an established medical arena where specialized knowledge is required. The diagnosis and management of Men’s Health diseases are continually evolving and are heavily influenced by advances in diagnostic technology, medications, and surgical devices. The greatest challenge that care providers face is staying up-to-date with the changes in this field, thereby assuring state-of-the-art care for their patients.

An internationally acclaimed faculty has been assembled to provide this update, with presentations on topics such as prostate screening and treatment, testosterone deficiency and the controversy of testosterone replacement, male urinary dysfunction, kidney and bladder pathology, sexual dysfunction, and genital pain syndromes. After the plenary sessions, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in case discussions and questionand-answer sessions.

Course Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, attendees should be able to:
• Discuss the role of PSA screening in men and describe additional tests now available for prostate cancer screening.
• Describe the management options for men with localized prostate cancer, including active surveillance.
• Review quality-of-life issues men face after prostate cancer treatment and develop a paradigm for addressing common issues.
