BPH Medical & Surgical Management Guideline Panel Meeting (2020)
The panel members will be reviewing evidence prepared and presented by a methodologist who has been extracting and analyzing data from research articles. The panelist will inquire about aspects of the evidence and the methodologist will provide explanations. The panel will discuss the evidence and deliberate on the best practice methods of medical and surgical management of BPH.
After completing this activity, participants will be able to:
- Analyze the latest scientific evidence for the diagnosis and management of BPH.
- Recommend appropriate diagnostic and treatment options for BPH.
