This CME activity aims to update learners on current guidelines for various gynecologic disorders. Given the specialized nature of these diseases, it is difficult for the community physician in clinical practice to maintain up to date knowledge regarding the diagnosis and treatment of these conditions. Healthcare providers may lack strategies for applying this new knowledge into their clinical and surgical gynecologic practice.
