  3. 3. COURSE DESCRIPTION This course will address topics of interest for practicing OBGYNs. The need for this course exists due to the rapid changes in thinking in the field, advances in technology, demographic changes in the population we serve and the breadth of practice encompassed by the combina- tion of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Interactive, engaging learning modalities will be incorporated into the course, including case review, panel presentations, Q&A, an elec- tronic audience response system, and review of cases submitted by learners. The course content will be divided approximately equally between obstetrics and gynecology with contribu- tions from general gynecology, and the four subspecialty areas; reproductive endocrinology and infertility, gyneco- logic oncology, urogynecology and maternal-fetal medi- cine. Evidence based course presentations by actively practicing experienced senior faculty (no trainees) will address commonly encountered clinical problems and refer to the latest recommendations by our professional societies to help practitioner’s better serve their patients. LEARNING OBJECTIVES Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to: • Counsel patients facing loss of fertility about the option of fertility preservation by oocyte vitrification • Utilize the latest methods for the management of uterine fibroids • Determine appropriate diagnosis and management of urinary incontinence • Compare non-invasive and surgical approaches to the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse • Implement screening tools for first trimester aneuploidy • Implement appropriate management strategies for their surgical patients at risk for VTE • Screen for and treat gestational diabetes according to the latest recommendations of the NICHD • Improve their evaluation and management of adnexal masses • Implement the most effective methods to prevent and screen for cervical cancer • Evaluate and treat newly recognized types of endometrial hyperplasia • Assess patients for their suitability for operative office hysteroscopy • Implement the latest recommendations for management of massive hemorrhage • Diagnose and appropriately manage women at risk for preterm birth due to a shortened cervix • Anticipate, diagnose and appropriately manage obstetrical complications associated with obesity • Appropriately immunize against and treat influenza in pregnancy • Diagnose and treat the growing number of women with placenta accreta • Utilize appropriately timed ultrasound examinations to diagnose obstetrical complications
