Conference Overview :
Increasing appreciation of the unique needs of women patients and women's health care providers has created a need for innovative educational programs on women's health. This program, designed for family physicians, internists, gynecologists, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacists, and all others involved in providing quality health care for women, will provide a practical update on a full range of common but controversial issues in women's health. The course will serve to enhance the skills of those already working in women's health as well as help develop new skills for those expanding their work to include more primary care and office gynecology. Developed and taught by UCSF faculty in both general internal medicine and obstetrics and gynecology, the course will present an integrated approach to women's health. Emphasis will be placed on new developments in preventive care and cardiovascular risk factors in women, issues in reproductive health, and clinical strategies in the diagnosis and treatment of common gynecologic complaints and common medical problems of women. Special emphasis will be placed on office skills needed for modern day practice including enhanced skills in physical examination, patient counseling, common office procedures, assessment of new medical technologies and therapeutics, clinical nutrition, and reading the medical literature. The course will use interactive lectures, clinical vignettes, hands-on workshops, small group discussions, audience response, and questions and answers. A detailed syllabus will be provided.
