Patient Handouts

Handouts — Spanish
Patient Advocate Reporter

As part of the IPPS mission we would like to inform patients with pelvic pain about the newest developments in the diagnosis and treatment of pelvic pain. IPPS members act as Patient Advocate Reporters at the IPPS Annual Meeting. Reporters will attend the meeting and each will select at sessions that they found most interesting and applicable to the patient with pelvic pain. They will write a 1 page summary in lay language for the session.
