Diagnosis and Management of Chronic Testicular Pain: State of the Science

Oct 12, 2013 3:00pm ‐ Oct 12, 2013 4:00pm

Men with chronic testicular/genital pain represent a small number of men evaluated in primary care, urology or pain clinics. This condition is poorly understood with a lack of consensus regarding treatment and represents an area of health disparity for men. This program is designed to raise awareness of this condition, relevant neuroanatomy and differential diagnoses in order to streamline care for these men. Earlier recognition of potential treatable causes will improve care for this population of men. There will be discussion regarding the state of the art and review diagnosis and treatment options.

Urine, Bugs and Drugs!

Oct 13, 2013 8:30am ‐ Oct 13, 2013 9:45am

APNAPN’s and RN’s can play a vital role in quickly recognizing and altering antibiotic regimens for patients that are infected with multiresistant organisms. These organisms include extended spectrum beta lactamase producers (ESBLs) and carbapenem resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) and can present as urinary tract infections as well as other system infections. It is important to understand how the microlaboratory identifies these organisms and other tests that can be ordered to assist with identification. The epidemiology and risk factors for the development of colonization or infection with multiresistant organisms of the urinary tract will be discussed. Treatment patterns will be reviewed and strategies to avoid these situations will be included using case studies.
