Educational Needs & Objectives
Reviewing up and coming diagnostic and therapeutic treatment options for men with unexplained infertility will allow providers to care for these patients with the most cutting-edge technologies. Similarly, reviewing the pro’s and con’s for Klinefelter fertility preservation strategies will help providers to understand how best to preserve their fertility. Our residents have clearly told us that they generally do not feel competent in managing male infertility, and we seek to improve on trainee education. Once out of training, we seek to determine how to ensure the longevity of the male fertility specialty by optimizing markers of success. Regarding the technology section, we seek to learn how providers can utilize telemedicine in their daily practice, and how to harness the internet to improve patient care.
At the conclusion of the SSMR at the AUA 2019 Annual Meeting, attendees will be able to:
- Explain up and coming genetic tests for male fertility and their implications for patient care.
- Describe the existing data for and against early fertility preservation options in males with Klinefelter Syndrome.
- Discuss strategies to improve resident exposure and education for male infertility.
- Identify how telemedicine can be used in male infertility, including for billing and legal concerns.
