Swedish Pelvic Health Presents: Getting the Lowdown on Pelvic Pain - A Case Based Approach

Friday, September 18, 2020
Live Virtual Conference

This conference will increase awareness of pelvic pain’s wide spectrum and various other pelvic floor disorders as well as their multidisciplinary treatment options. The course goal is to enable all clinicians and health care professionals involved in the care of this patient population to more accurately and quickly diagnose pelvic floor disorders. Attendees will learn to utilize a variety of treatment and referral options to improve patient outcomes and the overall quality of life for patients. Presentations will cover applicable information on topics related to pelvic pain such as neuroscience, gender, sex, pregnancy, postpartum, culture, updated urologic concepts and patient resources. Panel discussions and Q&A sessions will allow time for interaction with the faculty members to address audience questions and barriers to optimal patient care.

This conference is intended for primary care providers as well as any physicians and multidisciplinary team members who care for patients with pelvic pain or pelvic floor disorders, including providers in colorectal surgery, gynecology, urology and physical therapy.

Needs

Recent studies published in The National Center for Biotechnology Information has shown up to 24% of women and 16% of men worldwide suffer from chronic pelvic pain (CPP). Many people believe the symptoms of pelvic pain and various other pelvic floor disorders are untreatable or a normal part of growing older, so they live with the physical and emotional discomfort for too long. Yet, it is estimated that up to 84% of those affected by pelvic pain or pelvic floor disorders can be cured or improved.  
 
The estimated number of American women with at least one pelvic floor disorder expecting to increase from 28.1 million in 2010 to 43.8 million in 2050. This increase will result in a shortage of specialists to manage all these patients and provide timely diagnosis. Consequently, patients will be reliant on a wide variety of specialists: primary care, family medicine, urology, colorectal surgeons and gynecologists, to help treat these conditions. There is a need to provide education with updated diagnosis and treatment skills in related specialties so that all patients receive consistent care, timely diagnosis to relieve prolonged suffering and the best treatment for their condition.
