Medical Education: PROLOG’s Patient Management in the Office—Newly Revised and Available in Digital Format

The most popular volume in the Personal Review of Learning in Obstetrics and Gynecology (PROLOG) series, Patient Management in the Office, is newly revised and available in multiple formats to accommodate all your exam-prep needs.

Patient Management in the Office, Seventh Edition, provides updated data, techniques, and best-practice recommendations. The new edition focuses on epidemiologic factors that contribute to health care problems in practice; best practice screening approaches; correlations of presenting symptoms with diagnostic tools; traditional and alternative management strategies; counseling patients about risks and benefits of treatment; application of professional medical ethics to the practice of obstetrics and gynecology; and assessments of appropriate legal, risk management, and office management guidelines.

The new edition of Patient Management in the Office is available in print and as an eBook, allowing you to study where and when you want. The eReader format gives you access to the most current information on up to three devices. ACOG members can save $120 when purchasing both the print and eBook versions together. View pricing here.

In addition to the eBook, Patient Management in the Office offers its assessment online instead of the traditional paper answer sheet. With the online assessment, users can study at their own pace. You can take the online exam as many times as needed to complete the test successfully (a score of 80 percent or higher) and get instant results. The volume offers 25 CME credits, and participants can immediately print the CME certificate upon successful completion of the online assessment.

Two additional PROLOG volumes are also available in a digital format. Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, a new volume released in 2016, focuses on topics specific to pelvic floor disorders, including anatomy and physiology and epidemiologic factors and symptoms. Gynecologic Oncology and Critical Care, Seventh Edition, updated in 2016, covers advances in chemotherapy for ovarian cancer; incorporation of neoadjuvant chemotherapy in the treatment of ovarian cancer; new drugs for recurrent ovarian cancer; introduction of precision medicine into the care of women with gynecologic cancer; increased focus on survivorship, quality of care, and integrative oncology; new guidelines for cervical cancer screening and the management of abnormal cytology; and increased use of robotic-assisted surgery and other innovative surgical technologies.

PROLOG works as a personal study resource for practicing ob-gyns. Each edition includes an assessment comprising clinically oriented multiple-choice questions designed to stimulate and challenge readers. Each edition also comes with the Critique book, which serves as a handy reference guide, offers an explanation and discussion of each question in the assessment, and includes a review of educational objectives.

All editions in the PROLOG series cover key areas of obstetrics and gynecology, and offer up to 25 CME credits per volume upon completion of the assessment. Save when you purchase the complete set, which includes all six titles:
