OBJECTIVE: 

The intention of this course is to refine clinical practice and improve patient care by encouraging target questions by the physician; and review the option(s) of surgery in relation to the presented topics and patient safety. Participants will be able to identify various resources to improve patient safety and quality of life. Current personal knowledge enhanced by the specific discussions should produce the best treatment options for the presenting symptoms using surgical or non-surgical techniques.

At the end of the symposium, each attendee completes a written evaluation.  Questions such as:  How helpful was the information presented in this program; How timely and relevant was the information presented; After attending this program, we will rate the anticipation of changing patient care practices.
