Today (Thursday) from 8:00am to 5:00pm I was at the IPPS Annual Fall Meeting Basics Course, a one day seminar
- ...for medical students, residents, gynecologists, physical therapists, urologists, primary care physicians, nurses, surgeons, pain management physicians, psychologists, neurologists and basic science researchers who would benefit from a more detailed introduction to the concepts and terminology of pelvic pain issues and treatments before attending the IPPS Annual Fall Meeting on Chronic Pelvic Pain.
Wow. Looking at the list of all the different professions represented here makes me appreciate how multi-faceted pelvic pain is.
It was great. Over the course of a whopping ten lectures, a few breaks and a cocktail hour, I learned a ton, met fabulous people, and got a lot of ideas not only for future blog posts, but also for how the medical world can change to better serve both patients and clinicians.
It's now 9:30pm and I am snuggled in the top bunk of my HI-Chicago hostel room, just a few blocks away from the Palmer House Hotel where the conference is being held.
I am so grateful to be here. I would love to fill your brains with all the wonderful things I learned today, but that will have to wait for future posts...yawn... It's bedtime, people. 😴
