Testosterone deficiency is an increasingly common problem with an ageing and increasingly overweight population. The escalating emphasis on addressing erectile dysfunction has contributed to a rise in the utilisation of testosterone treatment. As a result, patients are increasingly being referred from primary care to various specialists, such as urologists, diabetologists, and endocrinologists.
The clinical cases presented within this module are based on the diagnostic synthesis, investigation and management of testosterone deficiency.
The module features clinical cases that closely mimic scenarios encountered in your specialised practice. You'll engage with questions designed to sharpen your skills in the diagnosis and management of testosterone deficiency. Each question serves as an opportunity to deepen your understanding and fine-tune your clinical expertise in addressing testosterone deficiency.
Once you complete the module - and achieve the minimum pass rate of 60% - you'll be awarded a downloadable 1-hour CPD Certificate, which you can print or upload to your CPD Portfolio.
This module is composed of 10 assessment questions covering aspects of diagnosis of hypogonadism, its investigation and treatment, and treatment of erectile dysfunction. On successful completion of the module, you will gain:
