Evaluation and management of chronic pelvic pain in women
Olson C, Schnatz PF

Program Audience Primary care physicians. Educational Needs Addressed Chronic pelvic pain is a challenging, often perplexing medical condition, affecting approximately 15% of women of reproductive age in the United States. Chronic pelvic pain contributes significantly to health care costs, with costs estimated at $2.9 billion in 1999. There is no universally accepted definition of chronic pelvic pain, and the ambiguity surrounding its definition can make appropriate diagnosis and management complicated. The diagnostic process is further complicated because etiologies can stem from gynecologic, urologic, gastrointestinal, musculoskeletal, or psychoneurologic abnormalities. Patients present with a broad spectrum of symptoms and may have multiple comorbidities. Educational Objectives After participating in this CME activity, primary care physicians should be able to 1. Discuss the etiologies of chronic pelvic pain 2. Describe the approach to assessment of the patient with chronic pelvic pain 3. Describe interventions for treating chronic pelvic pain 4. Describe the role of imaging studies in chronic pelvic pain
