From literature to clinical practice: which hints sexologists should take from the evidence-based medicine?
Speaker: Annamaria Giraldi
Content and Aim
We all want to use the evidence-based approaches to assessment and treatment of sexual problems. In that we rely on the published and reviewed literature to implement best evidence.
However – many treatments in clinical sexology haven’t been investigated in larger scale studies, the evidence can be unclear, our patient groups may not be the same studied or may have more complex presentations than in published literature. In addition – some treatments make a lot of sense when using clinical experiences and practice, or when relying on knowledge obtained from other fields though we cannot show larger scale effects in large studies. Furthermore, the clinical approach may be to combine treatments, which is rarely don in research studies.
The speaker will present and discuss some important publications relating to treatment of sexual problems in men and women, how we can use them and answer questions from the audience. The presented papers will be available for the audience.
