Current Openings

Writing Groups

Postoperative Voiding Dysfunction Following Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery Clinical Guidance Document Writing Group

Deadline: Monday, June 29, 2020

AUGS is currently seeking volunteers to serve on a Writing Group to develop a clinical guidance document on Postoperative Voiding Dysfunction Following Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery. Support from AUGS staff will be provided.

Postoperative urinary retention is a common consequence of pelvic surgery. However, due to the lack of standard definition and practice guidelines, the prevention and management of immediate and prolonged postoperative urinary retention vary widely within FPMRS. Evidence-based guidelines would help standardize best practices among female pelvic surgeons, which would improve patient outcomes and provide a basis for improvement for future research.

AUGS is seeking 5-8 Writing Group members. Participation requires the following:

  • regular communication via email
  • monthly conference calls
  • completion of assignments

AUGS is currently seeking volunteers to serve on a Writing Group to develop a clinical guidance document on Postoperative Opioid Use. Support from AUGS staff will be provided.

A growing body of data supports the development of guidelines for limiting opioid prescriptions after pelvic reconstructive surgery. It is important to note that many of the prospective trials evaluating opioid use excluded patient populations that may require higher levels of opioids; however, there are several interventions that may decrease the need for narcotics. These and other patient and systemic factors may impact opioid needs postoperatively. This document is to provide a framework to raise awareness of the role surgeons play in reducing over prescription of opioids.

Participation requires the following:

  • regular communication via email
  • monthly conference calls
  • completion of assignments  

Please submit a letter of interest stating your qualifications for the position, a brief CV, declaration of interest in a writing group member position, and financial and intellectual conflict of interest disclosures.
