Tis the Season for Good Laxation: How to More Effectively Treat Individuals with Chronic Constipation

Date: December 21, 2022
Time7 pm Eastern (6 pm Central, 4 pm Pacific)
Speaker: Darren M. Brenner, MD, FACG, AGAF, RDD | Northwestern University—Feinberg School of Medicine 
Moderator: Christina Lewicky-Gaupp, MD | Northwestern University

Chronic constipation is a common malady impacting 11% of the world population. It is more so common in older individuals. Historically, constipation has been considered a disorder of delayed transit, but individuals with normal transit experience the same symptoms. While laxatives may work for a select proportion of the population, many individuals suffer from pelvic floor dysfunction and require more specialized treatment. This discussion will focus on the epidemiology and pathogenesis of constipation, the timing of and appropriate diagnostics, and evidence-based treatments dispelling decades old myths and misconceptions about this disorder. 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Correctly define functional constipation using the Rome IV criteria 
  2. Differentiate the four major classes of chronic constipation 
  3. Understand the recommendations for specific over the counter therapies for constipation 
  4. Define the appropriate tests and order of testing to differentiate causes of chronic constipation 
  5. Dispell myths and misconceptions regarding chronic constipation

Simulation in FPMRS Education

Date: January 18, 2023
Time: 8 pm Eastern (7 pm Central, 5 pm Pacific)
Speakers: Robert Kelley, MD; Elizabeth Chahine, MD; Gina Northington MD, PhD; Mallory Youngstrom, MD | Emory University

What is the recipe for success in FPMRS simulation? Does one need to have an expensive simulation center to reap the benefits of simulation? Many urogynecologic procedures can be emulated on low cost and readily available materials that you can construct with ease. Join us for this webinar and we will equip you with the "ingredients" to construct your own simulation model. More specifically, we will build a uterosacral ligament suspension and colpocleisis trainer. At the end of this webinar, there will also be an educational discussion on the learning objectives.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participant will understand the history and background of simulation, the types of simulations and their ideal use and application for different learning objectives.
  2. Participant will learn how to plan and carry out surgical simulation at their institution.
  3. Participant will learn how to incorporate surgical simulation into their standard fellow curriculum, use it to maintain ACGME accreditation and options for educational scholarship.
