Midlife Women's Health 2022: A Multidisciplinary Approach to Care

May 13, 2022

May 13, 2022 | 7:45am - 5:00pm

This is a Virtual Conference with Live-Streamed Interactive Q & A and Expert Panel Sessions

Description

Midlife Women’s Health 2022 provides a multi-disciplinary approach to the care of menopausal women. Advances in research, technology, and pharmacology increase options available for midlife women, but this rapidly changing knowledge-base presents a challenge for clinicians. Care for women at this stage of life is optimized by education on a range of medical concerns provided by experts from a wide variety of medical specialties. Given demographic changes in the US population, midlife women are becoming an increasingly important group served by health care professionals, with needs that cross many areas of medical expertise.

Target Audience

This educational activity is designed for physicians and advance practice nurses in general medicine, gynecology, surgery and related subspecialties. Physicians and advance practice nurses in-training also are encouraged to attend.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  1.  Integrate bariatric surgery into the available management options for midlife obesity.
  2. Formulate a strategy to treat migraine at menopause safely and effectively. 
  3. Evaluate and treat hair loss in older women using a range of effective interventions. 
  4. Assess a midlife woman’s risk of type 2 diabetes and guide her in utilizing available treatment options.
  5. Employ meditation and mindfulness to reduce the high levels of stress experienced by midlife women and improve wellbeing and cognitive aging.
  6. Recognize, assess, and address unique risk factors for hyperlipidemia in aging women to optimize management.
  7. Provide perimenopausal women with education and strategies to enhance the transition to menopause.
  8. Utilize emotional intelligence to improve teamwork and patient satisfaction.
  9. Reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease in women and optimize care.
