Integrative Medicine Meets Urogynecology: A Current Review

Feb 13, 2019 7:00pm ‐ Feb 13, 2019 8:00pm

Identification: WEB190213

Credits: None available.

Integrative Medicine (IM) is the scope of medical practice that considers the patient as a whole: mind, body, and soul, community and way of life. It utilizes all appropriate evidence-based resources and therapeutic options: conventional and complimentary alternative medicine (CAM). According to the 2007 National Health Statistics Survey almost 4 out of 10 adults had used CAM therapy within the past year most commonly being medicinal herbs and other natural products and mind-body therapies i.e. meditation, deep-breathing exercises, yoga and manual medicine i.e. chiropractic and osteopathic manipulation. Currently 3 out of 4 adults utilize some form of CAM. Although FPMRS are predominantly surgical subspecialties, utilizing IM is not only beneficial in the perioperative period but more importantly it is beneficial in the various nonsurgical conditions including OAB, UTIs, chronic pelvic pain and sexual health.

This seminar will be valuable to the provider who wishes to add a dimension to patient care in FPMRS by optimizing IM treatment (CAM + conventional medicine).

Learning Objectives:

  • Define the basics of Integrative Medicine relevant to FPMRS.
  • Develop a basic understanding of common botanicals and medicinal herbs, minerals and supplements that can be utilized in the FPMRS patient.
  • Discuss the high-quality evidence-based relationships and some common (“things that make you go hmmm…”) therapies as integrative medicine applies to FPMRS/Urogynecology.
  • Learn how other available treatment options in Integrative Medicine can supplement conventional therapy in the refractory urogyn patient using a cased-based approach.
