Advancing Patient-Centered Care in Endometriosis

On Demand |

A Medscape Live! Event

On Demand

Endometriosis is a painful, chronic, estrogen-dependent disease that can have a profound impact on physical and emotional well-being, quality of life, and productivity, affecting approximately 10% of reproductive-aged women. Developing a patient care strategy requires clinicians to integrate a variety of disease- and patient-specific considerations including symptom severity, age, comorbidities, treatment goals, and the desire to have children. We invite you to engage with renowned faculty in this interactive, case-based journey on the management of women with endometriosis. You will have the opportunity to review and discuss management options within a range of patient presentations that mirror clinical practice. Expert-led presentations and discussions will reflect on the importance of timely diagnosis, informed clinical decision-making in the development of individualized care strategies, development of a stepwise approach to treatment that incorporates initial and ongoing assessment, and shared decision-making between clinicians and patients to optimize outcomes and improve patient satisfaction in women with endometriosis.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants will:

  • Have increased knowledge regarding the key data for newer medical management strategies for endometriosis
  • Have greater competence related to: 
    • The differential diagnoses of endometriosis
    • Development of personalized management strategies that incorporate clinical considerations and patient preferences
    • Utilization of a timely, stepwise approach to treatment modification

Supported by an independent educational grant from AbbVie Inc.
