There are a great many clinicians interested in treating women with sexual health concerns, but lacking the knowledge to do so. The ISSWSH Fall Course provides an evidence-based foundation upon which to incorporate this ability into practice, such as:
- How a medical, sexual and psychological history should be taken in women with sexual health problems.
- How tests for endocrinologic, neurologic and vasculogenic pathophysiologies should be obtained in women with sexual health problems.
- What relevant anatomic, physiologic and pathophysiologic information should be used to educate the woman with sexual health concerns.
- What validated questionnaires are helpful in the screening and diagnostic process.
- What sex therapy and physical therapy, as well as medical and surgical strategies, are useful in the management of women with sexual health disorders.
