Suspected Testosterone Deficiency | Module Overview

Testosterone deficiency is an increasingly common presentation in primary care with PCA data revealing a progressive 90% rise in the number of testosterone prescriptions from 2001-2010. Increasing prevalence of obesity and related hypogonadism together with a better understanding of the morbidity associated with testosterone deficiency may underlie this trend. Similarly the development of drugs to treat erectile dysfunction and the willingness of patients to seek opinion with ED has itself contributed to increasing investigation and treatment of testosterone deficiency.

However, the appropriate approach to the investigation and management of testosterone deficiency is a frequent conundrum in primary care. In consequence, the British Society for Sexual Medicine have recently developed a set of consensus statements based on current scientific evidence. This module focuses upon typical clinical issues associated with investigation and management. The cases are typical of what one sees in clinical practice and the questions apposite to what one might ask oneself about that case.

This module is composed of 10 assessment questions covering the specific aspects of the guidance, around which, confusion often occurs. The clinical cases will assess your knowledge and understanding on the assessment and management of suspected testosterone deficiency in men. Once you complete the module - and achieve the minimum pass rate of 60% - you'll be awarded with a downloadable 1 hour CPD Certificate, which you can print or upload to your CPD Portfolio.
