Annual Update on Women’s Health Conference – The University of Vermont
September 7, 2016 - September 9, 2016$450
The breadth and complexity of issues surrounding women’s healthcare make it increasingly difficult for healthcare professionals to remain current. Guidelines and recommendations for routine care in pregnancy, adulthood, menopause and beyond are constantly being updated. The goal of this conference is to incorporate several important healthcare issues from various specialties and illustrate how they uniquely impact women.
This conference is designed to bring together experts from a variety of disciplines to discuss advances in women’s healthcare in one concise meeting. Workshops have been added to facilitate greater participation and interaction among attendees. This conference is intended for physicians, advanced practice providers, midwives, nurses, students and other allied healthcare professionals who provide care for women.
At the conclusion of this conference, participants should be able to:
* Review up-to-date management of abnormal vaginal bleeding, diabetes in pregnancy, hyperlipidemia, opiate addiction treatment in pregnancy, pelvic organ prolapse, fibromyalgia and more.
* Describe health issues specific to women including ovarian cancer, non-contraceptive benefits of contraception, weight loss surgery, pelvic congestion syndrome, thyroid disease in pregnancy, common non-cancerous vulvar conditions, helping women succeed at breastfeeding and vitamin supplementation.
* Participate in workshops on health benefits of prenatal and postnatal yoga, IUDs and endometrial biopsies, human trafficking, infertility, office management of first-trimester miscarriage, and eating disorders.
