Evaluation and management of erectile dysfunction in clinical practice
Brant WO, Lue TF, Smith JF

Educational Needs Addressed Erectile dysfunction (ED) is common, affecting as many as 18 million men in the United States. Approximately 20% of all men and 75% of men aged 75 years and older have reported ED. In the United States, physician office visits related to ED and annual medication expenditures are increasing. Beyond the societal and financial impact of ED, the condition also negatively impacts patient health-related quality of life. Primary care physicians must be knowledgeable about how to assess a patient presenting with erectile complaints. Proper assessment, education, and treatment of patients with ED is necessary to improve sexual function and patient quality of life. Educational Objectives After participating in this CME activity, primary care physicians should be able to 1. State the causes of ED 2. Discuss what should be included in the initial assessment of a patient presenting with ED 3. Describe initial management strategies for ED and their respective side effects 4. Review alternative treatments for ED if initial treatment fails
