AAGL20: 49th Global Congress on Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery (MIGS) is organized by American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists (AAGL) and will be held from Nov 04 - 08, 2020 at Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center, Aurora, Colorado, United States of America. Target Audience: This activity meets the needs of surgical gynecologists in practice and in training, as well as other healthcare professionals in the field of gynecology. Accreditation: The AAGL designates this live activity for up to 39.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. Advance YOUR Career in MIGS! There is no better place for MIGS surgeons to develop your career in MIGS than the AAGL Global Congress. By attending, you’ll gain the tools and resources you need to implement successful MIGS practices – which help your practice or hospital succeed. We hope to educate, motivate, and empower attendees to become more effective through a partnership among worldwide colleagues, surgical teams, mentors/mentees, and industry partners. Needs Assessment By developing educational courses in minimally invasive gynecology (MIG) we hope to increase the use of MIG and reduce morbidity and complication rate associated with these procedures. Practice Gap: At present in the United States, about 15 to 20% of the 600,000 hysterectomies are performed by laparoscopy and robotics, respectively. This is due to lack of training during formal education and the multiple difficulties to acquire formal training once in medical practice. Gap Analysis: MIG procedures are aimed at preserving the highest possible quality of life for women by using smaller and fewer incisions, reducing pain and trauma to the body, and enabling quicker recovery. Yet, the ability to perform these more patient-friendly procedures requires most gynecologists to commit to post-residency training since they are not routinely taught during formal training. This requires a commit to lifelong learning because of the development of new technologies and instrumentation. Planning the Intervention Summary: The goal of our intervention is that, through exposure to continuing medical education (CME), gynecologists will attend activities organized into didactic and hands-on sessions to acquire and/or advance their skills in MIG. An open forum will follow with discussion designed to stimulate faculty and participants in interaction. Proposed Method: I. Create awareness of the role MIG plays II. Hands-on laboratory that will allow each participant to practice MIG techniques on cadavers III. Transfer skill to course participants through didactic lectures, video presentations and demonstration, and supervised wet lab surgery. IV. Expectations are that future courses can be organized to spread awareness and transfer skills in MIG to other gynecologists, who are willing to commit to this lifelong process. V. To maximize the return of this year’s Congress, upon completion participants will be requested to explain how their newly acquired knowledge and skills will impact their practice. Objectives: At the conclusion of the course, the participant should be able to: I. Explain the latest developments in minimally invasive healthcare for women. II. Describe the skills needed for proficiency III. Apply minimally invasive surgical techniques such as laparoscopic hysterectomy, myomectomy, pelvic floor repair, treatment of endometriosis, and advanced hysteroscopic techniques IV. Enable the practicing gynecologist to gain hands-on experience in the anatomy laboratory as well as laboratories focused on laparoscopic suturing, hysteroscopy, robotic surgery, single-port surgery V. Describe the latest advances in research and techniques in the field of minimally invasive gynecologic surgery. VI. Evaluate data presented to determine the best methods for practice of gynecologic medicine VII. Demonstrate and enhance their presentation and publication skills with a hands-on workshop VIII. Interpret and evaluate basic science techniques such as stem cell biology, cellular systems biology, and pre-surgical planning. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
Perinatal Care and the 4th Trimester: Redefining Prenatal, Postpartum, and Neonatal Care for a New Generation
Dec 02 - 04, 2020 | USD $575 | Aurora, Colorado
Perinatal Care and the 4th Trimester: Redefining Prenatal, Postpartum, and Neonatal Care for a New Generation is organized by National Perinatal Association (NPA) and will be held from Dec 02 - 04, 2020 at Hyatt Regency Aurora-Denver Conference Center, Aurora, Colorado, United States of America. Who Attends NPA Conference? • OB/GYNs • Neonatologists • Midwives • Neonatal Nurse Practitioners • Public Health Advocates • Insurance Providers • Community Health Professionals • Advocates • Harm Reduction Specialists • Mental Health Professionals • Doulas • Parents and Families Affected by Care Disparities • IBCLCs and Breastfeeding Counselors • NICU Clinicians • Neonatal Therapists • State Perinatal Coalitions and Quality Collaborative Members • Students, Residents, and Trainees • Lawyers • Policy Makers • Childbirth Educators • Social Workers • Psychologists • Case Managers Our Focus: A New Framework for Multidisciplinary Care in the 4th Trimester Course description: For too long perinatal care focused on nine months of pregnancy and the delivery of a healthy infant at 40 weeks. Then we underwent a paradigm shift. We realized that the care that we offer in first 100 days after a baby is born are just as important as the care we provide during pregnancy. The 4th Trimester was born! But care practices have lagged behind. If we're going to adequately meet the needs of parents, infants, and families we need a new multidisciplinary framework for delivering comprehensive, collaborative care during the 4th Trimester. This means not just addressing the medical needs of postpartum parents and newborns, but creating a safe and responsive environment that is prepared to address the physical, social, emotional, and economic challenges that many families face after the arrival of a child. We are looking for presentations and posters that relate to studying this topic or addressing such issues through institutional programs or public policy. Abstracts may describe contributions to theory, policy development, program development and evaluation, delivery of services, or research. Objectives for 2020 Conference: • To design a multidisciplinary framework for 4th trimester care that not only addresses the medical needs of postpartum women and newborns, but creates a safe and responsive environment for confronting the mental, social, and economic hardships many women and their families face after the birth of a child. • To review the latest evidence for optimal newborn feeding and newborn attachment in order to create an inclusive strategy that promotes and normalizes breastfeeding while ensuring all parents have the resources needed to provide the best possible nutrition for their child. (Best Milk initiative) • Continue to build on NPA's work with healthcare disparities in the perinatal period and focus on alleviating the inherent inequities faced by women of color in the 4th trimester. (Disparities workgroup, Transcultural workgroup) • Redefine discharge planning for the fragile newborn utilizing a multidisciplinary approach that incorporates the medical, economic, and psychosocial needs of families taking a baby home from the NICU. (Interdisciplinary workgroup on NICU Discharge Planning and Preparation) • Address specific circumstances such as substance use disorder, post traumatic stress, pregnancy loss, and postpartum depression with evidence-based interventions and compassionate care that empowers women and their families. (Perinatal Substance Use workgroup, Psychologists in the NICU program) • Begin an advocacy campaign for paid family medical leave that promotes family bonding, allows for proper recovery from childbirth, and emphasizes the importance of the 4th trimester for healthy human development.
