Part III: Mastering the Protocols for Optimization of Hormone Replacement Therapy - Complex Cases - October 2018
All participants will receive an electronic and printed syllabus with their registration. The eSyllabus will be available for download at least one week prior to the course. An email notification will be sent when it is available for download and will include links and instructions. This early release provides an opportunity to download and review the materials prior to the course.
PLEASE NOTE: We request you download the material prior to the event as internet access in the meeting room may be limited. We will also have flash drives available for those that find this easier than downloading. The syllabus can be saved in Adobe Reader which allows participants to add "sticky notes" directly on the slide as the speaker is talking. THese notes can be saved permanently to your document. Other recommended applications include iBooks (for apple mobile devices) and iAnnotate (for mobile devices). Lastly, put perhaps most important for many of us, a printed syllabus is available with an option for good old fashioned note taking.
In our efforts towards continuous improvement for our course curriculum, the Foundation for Care Management has requested that all attendees take a pre-test. Visit the FCM website to take the pre-test: FCM Pre-Test
The course code is : BHRT35418P1Y
Notification will be sent out after the course with links to complete the post-test and survey. These must be completed to claim your credit. Your certificate will be available to print online once the survey has been completed.

Objectives: Upon completion of this workshop the health care professional will be able to:
• Become proficient in newer age management protocols not presented in Parts I or II: more recent pertinent literature update and reviews, lab updates, and complex and interesting cases.
• Discuss the most current literature for bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), thyroid, testosterone, DHEA, estrogen and progesterone.
• Determine the risks and benefits of transdermal estrogen vs. oral estrogen, why one vs. the other one, and review the statistics that claim HRT increases blood clots, or does it?
• Discuss new research demonstrating estrogen’s protective effects in men, the lack of any harm, and the harm of suppressing estrogen in men.
• Examine current policy statements for hormone replacement therapy by the North American Menopause Society (NAMS) and American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), with a critique and review of their recommendations.
• Describe rational approaches for the use of progesterone in treating PMS and PPD.
• Discuss new therapies for prostate cancer as well as better diagnostic sensitivity and specificity of MRI-S scan.
• Determine current management strategies for preventing loss of pregnancy in Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) as well as improving pregnancy rates with aromatase inhibitors.
• Describe the clinical evaluation including laboratory analysis and treatment of Vitamin D deficiency and how much is too much.
• Examine literature reviews as to what level of Vitamin D protects against cancer, CAD, osteoporosis, dementia, type II DM and AMD.
• Discuss the pathophysiology of vaginal atrophy and the use of rings, tabs, troches, creams, and DHEA. • Discuss the importance of sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) in men and women and why it is most predictive of CAD, MS and cancer.
• Describe the data demonstrating that androgen suppression therapy, as well as estrogen deprivation, is associated with poor survival in men in comparison with placebo.
• Outline advanced treatment protocols for over 100 clinical cases based on clinical presentation, laboratory analysis, treatment, and complications in the Q & A sections.
• Discuss the inverse relationship of estrogen and prostate cancer. • Develop an understanding and treatment rationale for prostate cancer survivors through case presentations and literature review.
• Appreciate the lack of efficacy of estriol in spite of purported benefits.
• Describe the difference in clotting between Premarin®, Provera®, esterified estradiol, and micronized progesterone as per JAMA.
• Examine data proving that oral progesterone decreases clotting risk and inflammation as opposed to MPA that increases these risks as per the ESTHER trial.
• Appreciate the data demonstrating that only certain types of estrogen increase the production of fatty acid esters that result in protection against atherosclerosis and plaque deposition at the blood vessel wall.
• Demonstrate an understanding of the importance of maintaining low levels of aldosterone in patients with PCOS.
• Demonstrate an understanding of the importance of body weight in determining which type of HRT to prescribe. • Critique the data demonstrating that testosterone can both increase and decrease CVD in women and learn to decipher the correct approach.
• Identify the two mechanisms by which estrogen treats and protects against prostate cancer.
• Review treatment of endometrial proliferation with serial ultrasound results and laboratory monitoring.
• Illustrate a historical perspective on progesterone presenting no risk of breast cancer or VTE.
• Present over 200 complex case studies to compare, contrast and analyze treatment protocols.
• Demonstrate skills in case studies with interactive discussion to ensure interpretation and treatment protocols are as demonstrated in our evidenced based scientific literature.
• Examine the medical literature to understand how hormones affect cardiovascular disease for both men and women.
