Today’s world of obstetrics and gynecology is a complicated one and physicians must be
prepared to handle a variety of patient concerns and conditions — from complicated
problems to common issues. Obstetricians and gynecologists must stay current with
medical advances, best-practice approaches and patient safety issues, in order to provide
high-quality patient care.
At the completion of this symposium, participants should be better able to:
• Implement different modes of conflict management to improve communication with
colleagues, staff and patients in order to positively impact patient outcomes and safety.

relates to the obstetric patient.
• Effectively diagnose and manage DIC in the obstetric patient.
• Implement strategies based on the business imperative for quality improvement in the

females versus males, and evaluate the numerous factors that can impact female sexual
function other than biology and physiology.

options in the pipeline that may become available in the near future.
