Message from the APN/PA Affairs Committee Chair
On behalf of the Sexual Medicine Society of North America (SMSNA) I invite you to attend the fifth annual APN/PA Symposium at the 20th Annual Fall Scientific Meeting of SMSNA at Eden Roc Miami Beach, Miami, FL. This year’s symposium will again feature a diverse group of multi-institutional speakers dedicated to the practice of sexual medicine. Many of the featured speakers will demonstrate the “team approach” in the practice of sexual medicine. This year’s program will include updates on Controversies with Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT), Peyronie’s Disease treatment update, Imaging, Female Sexual Dysfunction (FSD), Penile Implant- Peri-operative Management, Penile rehabilitation/Incontinence Management Post RRP, just to name a few. A new feature this year will be presentations involving the psychological aspects of sexual dysfunction and the impact that lifestyle changes can have on sexual function. We will also continue providing the hands-on session giving participants the opportunity to experience and learn multiple procedures that can be performed in a sexual medicine practice.
The symposium is intended for advanced practice nurses, physician assistants, nurses, and medical assistants, or anyone interested in the practice of sexual medicine. In addition, physicians and practice administrators who have an interest in developing a “team approach” to providing sexual medicine will have an opportunity to see a number of examples of how this team approach can be implemented within their practices.
There will be a welcome reception providing an opportunity to catch up with old friends and make new ones. All participants will have the opportunity to interact with their colleagues and key opinion leaders in the field of sexual medicine.
So please join us for this year’s premier sexual medicine symposium for advanced practice providers and allied health professionals.
￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼See you in sunny Miami Beach!
