Pelvic Floor Symposium
Satruday, September 15, 2012
Who Should Attend
The symposium is designed for internal medicine and primary care physicians, gastroenterologists, urologists, gynecologists, and colorectal surgeons.
This symposium will provide a multidisciplinary approach to the recognition, initial management options, and definitive treatments available to patients with pelvic floor disorders, including but not limited to urinary and bowel incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, constipation, and pelvic pain.
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to link the educational objectives to Core Competencies (Medical Knowledge and Patient Care) and be able to:
- Recognize and describe contemporary evaluation and management of urologic disorders, including stress urinary incontinence and overactive bladder.
- Have an improved understanding of pelvic organ prolapse, and of surgical and non-surgical management options for these difficult clinical problems.
- Recognize and treat constipation and fecal incontinence, and be able to discuss new treatment options when conservative management fails.
- Identify the role and benefits of physical therapy in treating pelvic floor disorders relating to urinary and bowel disorders, as well as pain.

Discussion of Off-Label Use
Because this course is meant to educate physicians with what is currently in use and what may be available in the future, there maybe “off-label” use discussed in the presentations. Speakers have been requested to inform the audience when off-label use is being discussed.
