Symposium Overview
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.
Symposium Objectives
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.
• Identify the three segments of a difficult conversation, and utilize strategies to navigate
  more effectively to achieve a positive outcome.
• Discuss the clotting cascade by way of a more practical, user-friendly process.
• Recognize the pathophysiology of Disseminated Intravascular Coagulopathy (DIC) as it
  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
  ob/gyn practice.
• Identify the benefits of two types of clinical practice variation, and evaluate the office
  practice from a safety perspective.
• Distinguish between accurate data, biased reporting of studies and society-based
  guidelines to help guide patients in their decision-making processes about the use of
  hormone therapy.
• Educate patients about the important differences between the use of oral versus non-oral
  estrogen therapies and their impact on thrombogenic protein production, SHBG and
  C-Reactive Protein.
• Differentiate science from marketing when it comes to the requests for “bio-identical
  hormones” from both patients and the media.
• Detect and differentiate the causes of hypertensive emergencies during pregnancy.
• Implement appropriate management and drug therapy for a pregnant patient in
  hypertensive crisis.
• Identify indications and apply proper action, dose and precautions for commonly used
  intravenous anti-hypertensive agents during pregnancy.
• Communicate effectively with patients about sexual dysfunction and their causative
  factors, and make recommendations regarding therapy options.
• Describe the similarities and differences in the phases of normal sexual response of
  females versus males, and evaluate the numerous factors that can impact female sexual
  function other than biology and physiology.
• Examine the therapy options presently available for sexual dysfunction, and review
  options in the pipeline that may become available in the near future.

   Symposium History
   Established 25 years ago by Sanford H. Cole, M.D., the
   annual Ob/Gyn Symposium has grown from its modest
   beginnings as a half-day program held in the Baptist
   Hospital Auditorium to a full-day symposium. Through
   Dr. Cole’s vision and efforts, world-class educators have
   come to our community to discuss the newest concepts
   in obstetrics and gynecology. Generously supported by
   Baptist Health South Florida, this annual symposium
   attracts close to 200 physicians, nurses and other health-
   care professionals.

Baptist Health South Florida is the largest not-for-profit healthcare organization in
the region. Affiliates of Baptist Health include Baptist Hospital of Miami, Baptist
Children’s Hospital, South Miami Hospital, Homestead Hospital, Mariners Hospital,
Doctors Hospital, Baptist Cardiac & Vascular Institute and Baptist Outpatient Services.
