Leaders from five sub-specialty societies will talk about the current trends and hot topics in each of their disciplines on Saturday afternoon during this year’s “Cutting-Edge Topics in Ob-Gyn” session, which will be broken up into two parts, starting at 1:00 pm in Room 17AB.
The John E. Buster, MD, Reproductive Endocrinology/Infertility Session will feature presentations from Richard J. Paulson, MD, from the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) and Charles Rardin, MD, from the American Urogynecologic Society (AUGS).
The Kathryn M. and Thomas F. Purdon, MD, Generalists Session follows and will include talks from Lee A. Learman, MD, PhD, from The Society for Academic Specialists in Obstetrics and Gynecology (SASGOG); Carol L. Brown, MD, from the Society of Gynecologic Oncology (SGO); and Sean C. Blackwell, MD, from the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine (SMFM).
Moderating Cutting Edge Topics again this year is L. Chesney Thompson, MD, professor of obstetrics and gynecology, University of Colorado School of Medicine.
Presenters may share new information about clinical research and how it applies to clinical practice, including new guidelines, new treatments, understanding of technologies to improve everyday patient encounters, and changes in health policy and office management concerns that could impact a practice. Scheduled topics include route of hysterectomy, management of AUB, HRT, Pelvic Pain, Ovarian Reserve testing, egg freezing, pre-implantation genetics, cervical cancer screening, the ARRIVE study, Cesarean section rates, and induction of labor.
Speakers will present for 15 to 20 minutes and have been encouraged to leave time for audience questions. Each speaker will prepare their presentations with the understanding that most of the audience will have a clinical practice background.
