Recognizing and treating pelvic pain in women

July 26, 2023 | 8:00 am to 9:00 am

Women’s pain issues, including menstrual and pregnancy related pain, can often go dismissed due to a lack of training in pelvic pain. This can lead to the undertreatment of pain symptoms in women. How can family physicians better recognize and offer treatments to ensure these issues are being addressed? Join our upcoming session as our panelists offer personal experience with managing female patients with pelvic pain including investigations and treatment options.

The Practising Well Community of Practice has been certified by the College of Family Physicians of Canada and the Ontario Chapter for up to 1 Mainpro+Ⓡcredits. This Community of Practice includes a series of planned webinars. Each session is worth 1 Mainpro+Ⓡcredits, for up to a total of 12 credits.
