Colposcopy: Case Based Pre-Course Program
What Everyone Ought to Know about Vulvovaginal Disease Pre-Course Program
Educate the Educator
The ACCME has awarded the ASCCP Accreditation with Commendation for six years for providing continuing medical education for healthcare providers.
The Annual Meeting provides learners with a review of currently available screening and management guidelines along with the most up-to-date advances in the prevention, screening, diagnosis and treatment of lower genital tract disorders with an emphasis on Human papillomavirus (HPV)-associated diseases and cervical cancer. It is designed to improve medical knowledge, practice-based learning, patient outcomes, and/or systems-based practice.
At the conclusion of this program,
- Understand the biology, epidemiology, natural history, and immune response to HPV, in association with the development of lower genital tract neoplasia. Also understand the societal costs associated with genital HPV infections (medical knowledge, practice-based learning);
- Manage positive cytology and HPV test results, high risk HPV genotype results, and histologically
- confirmed lower genital tract neoplasia reflecting current and future patient risk of high grade
- neoplasia (medical knowledge; practice based learning; patient outcomes);
- Apply colposcopy to the diagnosis and management of lower genital tract disorders in ways that reflect its usefulness and maximum benefits while minimizing potential harms and recognizing limitations of the method (medical knowledge; system-based practice; patient outcomes);
- Successfully apply consensus guidelines for cervical cancer screening and management of cervical abnormalities to women in both the general population and in special circumstances using evidence derived from epidemiological, natural history and observational studies (systems-based practice, practice-based learning, patient outcomes, medical knowledge);
- Successfully apply management strategies to women with lower genital tract disorders in special populations, especially young women, postmenopausal, and underserved women, with insight into special problems encountered including HPV-associated anal disease (medical knowledge, practice-based learning, patient outcomes, systems-based practice);
- Integrate into practice new insights from the latest research on prevention, diagnosis and management of lower genital tract disorders (medical knowledge, practice-based learning);
- Diagnose and treat lower genital tract disorders to include cervical, vaginal, vulvar, and anal intraepithelial neoplasia, genital warts, and other vulvar and vaginal diseases (medical knowledge, practice-based learning, systems-based practice).
- Discuss strategies for prevention, screening, early detection and management of HPV-associated oropharyngeal disorders
