Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Obstetrics/Gynecology Volume 60, Issue 06: Pearls in Urogynecology.

The goals of this program are to improve diagnosis and management of urogynecologic conditions. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Evaluate the efficacy and safety of approved, off-label, and investigational pharmacologic agents for treatment of incontinence.
2. Describe plant- and bacterial-derived biologic agents under investigation for treatment of incontinence.
3. Counsel a patient who has incontinence about use of a voiding diary, lifestyle interventions, and dietary and fluid management techniques.
4. Incorporate pelvic floor exercises, biofeedback, electrical stimulation, and/or vaginal cones into a treatment program for a patient with incontinence.
5. Recognize the advantages of biologic grafts in the treatment of stress incontinence.

The original programs were presented by Peter K. Sand, MD, Clinical Professor, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine; Director, Evanston Continence Center, Evanston, IL, and Karen Sasso, RN, APN, Program Manager/Urogynecology Clinical Nurse Specialist, Evanston Continence Center, NorthShore University HealthSystem, Evanston.
