Program Overview 

Endometriosis is one of the most common benign gynecologic conditions that occur during a woman’s reproductive years. Despite the high prevalence of this disease, a large proportion of women with endometriosis remain undiagnosed and untreated. Unfortunately, even after diagnosis and treatment, recurrent and persistent pain are common and represent a significant challenge for patients and health care providers. Guided by our expert faculty, Endometriosis Boot Camp: Exploring Patient Perspectives to Improve Diagnosis and Management is a multimedia training program designed to strengthen expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of endometriosis.  This activity will provide information on how and when to incorporate diagnostic imaging modalities, weigh the individual risks and benefits of surgical diagnosis and treatment, and incorporate new pharmacologic therapies in the management of endometriosis.

Target Audience 

The educational design of this activity addresses the needs of gynecology clinicians and providers in primary care (eg, MDs, PAs, NPs, and nurses) and reproductive specialists involved in endometriosis diagnosis and management.

  • Compare the efficacy and safety profiles of surgery with available pharmacotherapeutics approved to treat endometriosis-related pain and prevent its recurrence
