Sexual Medicine Society of North America (SMSNA) Annual Conference
Advanced Practice Nurse/Physician Assistant Symposium
November 21, 2013
On behalf of the Sexual Medicine Society of North America I would like to cordially invite and welcome all nurses, advanced practice nurses (APNs) and physician assistants (PAs) interested in sexual medicine to the SMSNA 2013 Annual Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana on November 21– 24, 2013. In addition to all the excellent sessions at the conference, the APN/PA symposium will be held on Thursday, November 21, 2013. As an APN, PA or nurse, you play a crucial role in educating and helping patients with sexual dysfunction to integrate treatments into their lives. This program was designed by advanced practice nurses and physician assistants from SMSNA and includes topics such as evaluation and management of erectile dysfunction, cardiovascular disease and erectile dysfunction (ED), hypertension and ED, metabolic syndrome, diabetes and ED, evaluation of hypogonadism and current trends in testosterone replacement and evaluation and management of Peyronie’s Disease. The afternoon will feature a networking lunch followed by a program on evaluating and managing sexual pain in women and in men featuring internationally recognized speakers as Susan Kellogg-Spadt, PhD, CRNP, IF and Robert M. Moldwin, MD. The final sessions of the day feature stations on pelvic pain and the pelvic floor, penile injections and priapism, the vacuum device, implantables, troubleshooting with the penile implant and male genital evaluation. As always the SMSNA meeting will feature peer-reviewed abstracts from all areas of science, medicine and surgery in sexual health.
I look forward to seeing you in New Orleans!
