Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) has been shown clinically and throughout the literature on the subject to be highly beneficial for men suffering from hypogonadism. However, there has also been much controversy in the medical community about both the efficacy and safety of TRT. The purposes of this webinar are to provide attendees with an overall better understanding of the benefits of testosterone in men, give them confidence in prescribing TRT effectively in their hypogonadal patients, discuss the potential downside of using TRT, and clear up misconceptions of the danger of using TRT. The majority of the webinar will focus on evidence- and case-based support for using TRT in clinical practice.
After the presentation, participants will be able to confidently:
- Understand the normal physiology and function of male sex hormones.
- Understand how to prescribe testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) in clinical practice
- Consider dangers of using TRT.
- Illustrate key concepts of TRT through clinical case review.
